Fine Arts Center Concert Hall

“Invigorating the stage with that elusive thing called joy” (New York Times), Spirit of Uganda presents riveting programs of music and dance for audiences of all ages. To the melodic tones of standing drums, with dramatic choreography, bright, layered rhythms, and gorgeous call-and-response vocals, a vibrant cast of 22 performers, ages 10-20, 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 they are provided with the resources to succeed. With Artistic Director Peter Kasule and special guest Rachel Magoola (Afrigo Band) leading the way, Spirit of Uganda celebrates the cultural roots and newer offshoots of this lush and diverse nation.
