IRYN Namubiru is back. The female artiste of the year at the 2006 PAM Awards has recorded 15 hear-warming, lush and sweeping songs making up two albums, which will be launched in Kampala on July 28.
Four of the tracks: Newadeyo, Mbyogere Ntya, Osindise Asitamye (featuring Qute Kaye) and Ngenze are already enjoying frequent airplay.
Nikikuona, a Swahili track is already a hit in Kenya.
In most of her songs, there is a bit of the Iryn you heard last year, but there are also things that are totally new.
For instance, on Ngenze, Iryn employs Zouk, while Ca Bonge is sang in French and Luganda.
Ca Bonge addresses issues of universal concern like love, having fun, corruption and domestic quarrels.
Iryn has also redone Philly Bongoley Lutayaâ€™s song, Empisazo. She has not changed the melody of the song, but has employed her style.
Since the song was sang by a man, Irynâ€™s feminine voice makes it different, but nice to listen to.
Other songs on the albums include Wanipa Hamu, Waniinze, Tugume (Featuring Jimmy Katumba), Abakadde and No Little Yet (featuring Silver Kyagulanyi).
Early this year, Iryn held performances in Los Angeles, Boston and Washington DC in the US, where she sampled the new tracks.
