“Rwanda: Heather Maxwell Sings Her Heart Out At the Afro Jazz Jam Session DESPITE HAVING to catch the next flight after her performance, Heather Maxwell put on an amazing performance during the Afro jazz jam session on Saturday evening. The sizeable audience at the Goethe Institute was electrified by Maxwell's performance. She was accompanied by some of Kigali's best jazz talents like Ben Ngabo, Sam Mugisha and Mighty Popo among others. Heather did live renditions of Miriam Makeba's Malaika and PataPata, like they were her own compositions. Among her original compositions, she performed Malado, Body and soul and her latest single Mango tree, which is already rocking radio airwaves throughout the country. "I have had several performances but I enjoyed this performance the most because they have a very lively, warm and friendly audience. They showed me much love when I sang Malaika and PataPata," she said.”
