Suubi Fusion Troupe with Guest perfomance by Errol Blackwood

Description: There are more than 22 000 private schools in Uganda and education is not free. In 2005, Mde Kevin Kalule, Director of Cambridge Secondary School, opened her academy after observing there were hundreds of poor youth in her town of Kyengera who had no opportunity to attend school. Many students are able to attend school on full or partial bursaries through their dancing, drumming and singing talents. Drumming and dancing are an integral part of African culture. Even in the poorest villages they will dance and drum for guests of honour to proudly show their local culture and talent. Whether they perform the King or for esteemed visitors, one must marvel at their energy, enthusiasm and talent! This day you will see 8 of those young women and men perform traditional African drumming and dancing under the direction of Mde. Justine Birabwa. Suubi, is the Luganda word for “hope”. How apt! Let us indeed dare to hope, dare to dream and dare to inspire the youth of Uganda to find their way forward through education.
