KUTX Presents: Jon Muq at Waterloo Records

Location: Waterloo Records

Date: May 31, 2024

Time: 5 P.M.

Free Event | KUTX Presents

For Jon Muq, a singer-songwriter born in Uganda and now living in Austin, Texas, music is part of a larger conversation he’s having with the world and everybody in it. Drawing from African as well as western musical trends and traditions, he devises songs as small gifts, designed to settle into everyday life and provoke reflection and resilience. “These days the world is sad,” he explains, “so I wanted to make happy songs. I wanted to write songs that connected with the listener in a very personal way. When someone listens to my music, it’s not just about me and what I’m singing. It’s about how they understand the songs individually. I think these songs can speak many languages, depending on what you want from them. Celebrating the release of Flying Away, Jon Muq takes the Waterloo Records Stage on Friday, May 31st at 5pm!
