Event Details

“Invigorating the stage with that elusive thing called joy.”
The New York Times

This vibrant music and dance extravaganza features a cast of performers ages 11-18 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, exhilirating choreography, layered rhythms, and call-and-response vocals to share the culture of their East African homeland.

“The drums and vibrant human voices all send a message –

one of courage and hope.”
The Village Voice

Led by 30-year old Artistic Director and master of ceremonies, Peter Kasule, and produced by Empower African Children, Spirit of Uganda brings a dual message of hope and awareness. Combined with cultural African traditions are contemporary concerns that address real life issues – issues that have affected the children personally – such as devastation in the wake of illness, poverty and war. 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.
