â€œInvigorating the stage with that elusive thing called joyâ€ (New York Times), Spirit of Uganda presents riveting programs of music and dance for audiences of all ages. To the melodic tones of standing drums, with dramatic choreography, bright, layered rhythms, and gorgeous call-and-response vocals, a vibrant cast of 22 performers, ages 10â€“20, bring to life the sounds and movements of East Africa. With Artistic Director Peter Kasule and special guest Rachel Magoola (Afrigo Band) leading the way, Spirit of Uganda celebrates the cultural roots and newer offshoots of this lush and diverse nation.
Ambassadors for Ugandaâ€™s 2.7 million orphans, these children personify the resilience and promise of Africaâ€™s next generation when they are provided with the resources to succeed.
