Waluguru Original Band set to start shooting new album's videos next m

MOROGORO's dance music band, Waluguru Original, is set to start shooting videos for the troupe's new album, titled 'Kikao cha Wahenga', after the completion of the General Election slated for October 28 this year.

Waluguru Original Band's Director, Deogratius David.

Deogratius David 'Killer Man', the Waluguru Original Band's Director, stated the troupe had earlier planned to shoot the videos last month but they were forced to shelve the plan because of issues that were beyond the artistes' control.

"The production of the new album's videos will now start after the General Election, we will shoot the videos in various parts of Morogoro, which has attractive mountains,'' he disclosed.

David pointed out the 'Kikao cha Wahenga' album has six tracks, 'Morogoro Yetu', 'Mwanzo wa Mapenzi', 'Cha Kupewa', 'Ngalile Mwanangu Ndole', 'Supu' and 'Nataka Nilewe'.

He said the troupe will though start shooting videos for four of the album's songs.

"'Morogoro Yetu' is one of the songs that we will produce videos for, the track details Morogoro's qualities that include attractive mountains and good weather, the song also promotes the region's tourist attractions,'' he disclosed.

He noted the troupe has, since launching the album in August this year, embarked on presenting it to music fans at various shows whilst planning to shoot videos for some of the songs.

"The album's launch was one of our strategies for seeing to it Morgoro regains the enthusiasm the region had in dance music in the past,'' he disclosed.

The vocalist said Morogoro held sway in dance music in Tanzania, boasting of several gifted musicians including Mbaraka Mwishehe.

He said the region's passion for music, though, started waning in the closing stages of the 1970s.

He pointed out he is now set out to slowly see to it Morogoro regains passion for dance music promotion.
