Geoffrey Oryema is a Ugandan musician that fled his native country, which was then led by Idi Amin, in 1977 after his father, a former Cabinet Minister was murdered. Last December he returned to Uganda and performed for the first time in 39 years. There’s a bio on his website here.
His gentle voice sings in French, English, Swahili and Acholi. Well worth a listen.
