This project is designed to create Global Initiative Educational and Performance opportunities for schools, colleges, universities and other venues, featuring the traditional musicians, music, instruments, and dances of Uganda East Africa.
Through a combination of paid and volunteer partnerships between Uganda, the United States, and Canada we will promote cross-cultural awareness and understanding, while preserving the endangered livelihoods of Ugandan traditional musicians, instrument makers, and dancers. Many of who are unable to support themselves or their families.
Courses (such as the Hear, Listen, and See Musical Adventure created by Bakka2thesource), workshops, artist in resident, and mentoring opportunities are planned for children and adults of all ages throughout the US and Canada. Carefully planned and implemented experiences are offered to enhance understanding of our lives within a broader context, while sharing the rich cultural heritage of Ugandan music with the world.
We hope you will consider joining our efforts to bring these talented musicians to perform and return home with income that will support families and communities.
