SEBY NTEGE: Uplifting Afro fusion and  folkloric dance music with a sound grounded in Uganda but consolidated in the UK. Seby Ntege is a uniquely charismatic singer and songwriter from the Busoga region of eastern Uganda renowned for producing some of East Africa’s best multi-instrumentalists and is himself a master of half a dozen folkloric instruments, including the akogo thumb piano and adungu harp among others.

Born into a musical household Seby joined the family band Nile Beat Artists aged 13, introducing him early to the international stage and touring neighbouring African countries as an instrumentalist and dancer.

Based here in London, Seby is regarded as an ambassador of traditional Ugandan music. In 2018 gathering a multicultural band around him, Seby distilled this journey into a highly autobiographical album entitled Five Notes that would showcase his virtuosity as a musician.

Picked up by A World In London’s DJ Ritu and championed by BBC Radio 3’s Max Reinhardt via BBC Introducing, Five Notes received praise on BBC World Service, Resonance FM and BBC London, leading to live appearances at WOMAD and Latitude festivals and a 10 date UK tour supported by Arts Council England.

In 2021  Seby released a five track EP entitled Nomads. The EP’s five songs consider what it means to travel and to return, and how home can be found in both a place and a person with emotive festive filled songs. The EP features the traditional folkloric instruments Seby introduced listeners to on his 2018 album Five Notes,  alongside guitars, bass and drum.

Seby has continued to be a festival favourite playing at several festivals including Beardy Folk festival and Tropical pressure festival. Seby is due to release a new album entitled Love and Heritage 6th Jan 2023.

The album is co-written with his guitarist, singer song writer Ben Avison and includes a track with legendary Rise Kagona (Bhundu Boys) on guitars.
