New female artist AVM (Alice Violet Mutumba) is about to release her Debut Single Kwata Ko
AVM sites her travels around the African continent as the biggest influence to her music and to her as an artist. “I am Ugandan but LOVE the entire continent. I have visited countries such as, Nigeria, Tanzania, South Africa, Angola and of course my native Uganda. Everything about Africa has given me the inspiration to follow my dreams.”
“Afro Beats have been popularized in the U.K by male artists who have enjoyed top ten hits, but I think its time for a woman to step onto the scene.”
“I am excited about my first single Kwata Ko because African music is the future, and is opening doors for artists like me based in the West. In London alone two major radio stations are now playing African music and African artists are releasing their music in the European charts.
“This IS New Africa, (TINA). I hope to bring something unique to the African music movement, and believe that my brand of Progressive Afro Pop, will do
“My musical influences are Afro beats from West Africa, Afro House from Southern Africa and Kuduru from Angola. Of course I also love, R&B, Hip Hop, Gospel, Ragga, Socca and even classical. Growing up in London has exposed me to many cultures and styles.
The upcoming video to the song was directed Konstantine of Ikon Production and produced by one Mastermind Media. AVM says, “I was lucky to be guided by such professionals for my first video and things will only get better from here…”
