GOSPEL music is rising fast. Although it is early to rank her in the realm of Judith Babirye, Betty Namaganda and Wilson Bugembe who have rocked this genre, Hindu Asha will hold her own depending on how well she is marketed. She is a new and a welcome face to the gospel music scene.

Her voice and songs are good. Her debut CD, Kwali Kwagala, which also doubles as the title track, is commendable. In it, she says God so loved us that he gave us his only son.

The mid-tempo effort makes for good listening. Unfortunately, the video is not that captivating. Although the use of children was not bad, it makes the song look like it is about children.

Although on Neraga Mukama Asha sounds like Judith Babirye in the chorus, her collaboration with Qute Kaye is a worthy effort. Kaye’s raspy voice addition to the tune gives it a whole new sound.

On Muzudde, another well crafted mellow tune, Asha delves into love. Without going secular, she sings about finding the love of her love, albeit with God’s help. It is a nice tune that could be listened to by both the secular and gospel fans.

The six-track offering is a worthy effort since half of the songs off it are good.
If Asha positions herself well, she will be a force to reckon with.
