"Invigoration the stage with that elusive thing called joy." - New York Times

"Young, proud, and marvelously spirited musicians and dancers.  Whatever these performers do, in whatever different bright attire, they do with discipline, fervor, and joy . . .The pounding feet and agile bodies, the drums and vibrant human voices all send a message - one of courage and hope."

- Village Voice

A project of Empower African Children, the Spirit of Uganda presents riveting programs of music and dance for audiences of all ages.  This vibrant music and dance extravaganza features a cast of performers ages 13-21 who have traveled from halfway around the world in celebration of their passion for the arts and their joy for life.  To the melodic tones of standing drums, with dramatic choreography, bright, layered rythms, and gorgeous call-and-response vocals, a vibrant cast of 21 performers, osciallates between ferocity and softness as they bring to life the sounds and movements of East Africa.  Ambassadors for Uganda's 2.7 million orphans, these children personify the resilience and promise of Africa's next generation when provided the resources to succeed.  They have performed at prestigious concert halls all over the country and have been loved by thousands of viewers.
