About Bakka2theSource

Bakka2thesource, founded by Ugandan Master Percussionist Samuel Bakkabulindi, and cofounded by Beth Zwecher LICSW, is a collaboration of artists and musicians, sharing unique and powerful gifts for the purpose of celebrating the Glory of God through music and song. Our mission is to promote and facilitate cross cultural understanding and awareness between Indigenous music and the world. Our goal is to use our stewardship of financial resources, beginning in the country of Uganda, to educate children, restore musical instruments that are in danger of becoming extinct, while insuring that the people who play them are able to provide for the needs of their families.
