Forget the formal function of chartering members

It was a mix of both traditional and modern music, with some inclusion of Lingala as the Rotary Club of Kisugu Victoria View was launched at the Golf Course Hotel on Saturday night.

Forget the formal function of chartering members and other formal proceedings including speeches, the informal function vibrated more as the patrons emptied their glasses of wines and beers, with the few doing some sodas and waters.

It was Maurice Kirya who opened the music with an interlude as he dedicated his song Mushrooms to Harriet Bampeera Obbo, the first chairperson of the club.

The Kisugu traditional dancers group, who will be the beneficiary of the  first project then  went north with the dingi dingi dance from Acholi as they gyrated their hips to the clapping before the members of the  Rotary Club took to the stage amidst a thunderous  welcome.

They performed a creative dance which was a mixture of Lingala and soukous as the guests of aside their spoons and folks and rushed for their phones to record the scenes, that were only interrupted by the DJ who  stopped it midway, before the dance opened to crown the evening.
