Hailed as "first rate" and "inspiring" by The New York Times, Children of Uganda returns to the Fine Arts Center for an evening filled with celebration through dance and song. Ranging in age from 8-18, the 20-member troupe led by Peter Kasula has toured the US biennially since 2002, performing in dozens of cities across the country and at hundreds of venues. The Children of Uganda's exuberent and powerful programs tell the stories and history, the legends and beliefs of East Africa.

"Given sorrow, they have made beauty. With nothing more than sticks and drums and their own bare feet, they have made art. Their performance brought the audience to their feet, cheering and stomping and whistling for more..." Boston Globe
