Produced by Empower African Children, Spirit of Uganda is a professional training and touring program.
Under the artistic direction of Peter Kasule, these young dancers and musicians share cultural traditions from East Africa and introduce some of the dynamic music and dance forms that are being created now.
Impassioned ambassadors of their rich culture and articulate advocates for their homeland, these children are joyous, thriving examples of what is possible when potential is recognized and realized. At home and abroad these artists of the highest caliber play a significant role.
Spirit of Uganda has been seen at NYU’s Skirball Center and NYC’s Joyce Theater, UC Davis and Santa Barbara, Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, Annenberg Center, the universities of NC, IL, MI, & MA, at the Vancouver Cultural Olympiad and the UN General Assembly. Special appearances also include Macy’s Passport AIDS benefits in San Francisco and Los Angeles.
