Neptunez was created in 2014 to provide a fusion of truly authentic local tunes with a global and golden touch by one talent scout Remmy Lubega with help of Rwagasana Enoch.The band was initially created on a seven piece setup hence deriving name Neptunez denoting music from another planet. Neptunez is positioned as an urban professional live band that was missing in the Rwandan live music scene.The center piece of Neptunez is an instrument known the saxophone.This instrument was introduced in the local music scene 20 years after the genocide against the Tutsi.It is instrumental to note that the genocide against the Tutsi dealt a great blow to the local music industry.Of particular concern was the loss of local saxophonists.Neptunez sought to replenish the glaring gap
Given its positioning in the local music industry Neptunez Band seeks to provide a unique musical performance that elevates the ambience of your live event.Through its 4 year journey we have provided some of the most memorable live performances in Rwanda cutting across our own shows , weddings, corporate events to mention but a few.In addition, we have worked tirelessly to develop a home grown jazz event brand known as the Kigali Jazz Junction (KJJ).
