Formerly Uganda’s Best Kept Musical secret, Maurice has risen to become an African Musical star defining his Music as “Mwooyo” or Soul in his Native Language. “Misubbaawa” his Maiden Album, is a magical touch of Acoustic Melodies and harmonies with unique rhythms and stories akin to his motherland. The album was such a big success that it ranked him Uganda’s best Musical export to the world. It’s the same album that won him the Coveted 2010 RFI Discoveries Music Award that saw him tour Africa and the world sharing “Mwooyo” and talking about his Home Country Uganda. With songs like “Boda Boda” “I will sing” and “Misubbaawa” The album offers a wide musical spectrum to the listeners that opened Maurice Kirya to a global Audience.
His music is poetically deep and lyrically sound – “I want my music to move hearts, encourage hearts, strengthen hearts and heal them.” Maurice Kirya says. As a multi-talented Artist, Maurice is an instrumentalist, song writer and an Actor. He has won multiple awards, has been nominated for numerous others and has worked with celebrated Artists across the globe.

With a new album coming soon this is just the start for the Young Ugandan Artist whose musical journey is filled with infinite possibilities
