About this show

This vibrant music and dance extravaganza features a cast of performers ages 8-18 who have traveled from halfway around the world in celebration of their passion for the arts and their joy for life. The moving - both physically and emotionally - performers use exuberant drumming, choreography, layered rhythms, and call-and-response vocals to share the culture of their East African homeland. Led by 30-year old Artistic Director, Peter Kasule, and produced by Empower African Children, Spirit of Uganda brings a dual message of hope and awareness. Empower African Children is a non-profit organization working to help the young people of Uganda develop leadership skills, get educated and tell their own stories through the arts.
