Tanzanian Musical Artist Alex Kajumulo to Raise Awareness for Gay & Lesbian Rights in Africa

(EMAILWIRE.COM, February 04, 2010 ) SEATTLE, WA – Alex Kajumulo, the soulful World fusion R&B artist, will be performing February 21st at Olympia’s hottest gay bar, Jake’s on 4th, to raise awareness for the Gay & Lesbian Liberation Front of Africa (GLLFA). Doors open at 5pm with a 7pm show time. With the recent hate-filled laws passed in Uganda criminalizing homosexuality, it is more important than ever for global citizens to keep African Gays and Lesbians in their minds. Kajumulo hopes his message of universal acceptance among African youth will help change attitudes toward Gays and Lesbians in in African countries.

In addition to “One Love is the Law” which says directly that we must respect each other no matter what sexual orientation, religion or race and “What is Love” which was inspired by the passage of Proposition 8 in California, Kajumulo will be performing selections from his 6th and latest album, Never Surrender. Praised as his most personal album to date, Never Surrender tells of Kajumulo’s struggles during his childhood that helped make him the artist, performer, and teacher he is today. Many of the tracks on this album were co-written, co-produced, and performed with his close friend and fellow Tanzanian James Dandu before he passed away.

Kajumulo was born and raised in the bush of Tanzania, Africa. As a youth, he started playing professional soccer, which took him all over the world and introduced him to all kinds of people. Today, Kajumulo lives with his family in Seattle, WA where he is a full time youth select soccer coach and has written a soccer book for youth entitled “Soccer Monster.”

His first album, Never Before, was released in 2007 and has played on radio stations around the world rising to the top ten on the charts in many African countries and on the World Music Charts in Canada. Since then, Kajumulo has received numerous awards and featured slots on countless programs. Even television has embraced his music. In 2009, Kajumulo and three members of his band were featured on the Seattle Cable Channel show, "ArtZone with Nancy Guppy", and Ed Mays Productions, created two one-hour documentaries on Alex Kajumulo and his music for Pirate TV. Theses programs have been aired on public access and local cable in the Seattle area. Lastly, to round out the full spectrum of his exposure, non-profit environmental agencies around the world, like the New Zealand Trust for Conservation Volunteers, the Audubon Society of Central Oklahoma, the Earth Charter Youth Initiative, and The Climate Project have been using Kajumulo’s song “Global Warming” from the Bushman Vision album in their promotional campaigns.
