Slideshow: Mount-Elgon Ngoma Drummer Troupe Performing in SALEM Village and Mbale

VIDEO-Content: the Calabash-Dance – Profile of the groupe – Member Interviews – 34 min

In November 2013 I visited  Ngoma-Troupe in Mbale and recorded about 2 hours of their performance.
First time I met them at SALEM-Village in May/June 2013,when they accompanied the farewell-evening of our visitors-group. I admire how they capture the different regions and traditions in Uganda.
It ist not just »african music« in a simple touristic way. At the same time the project is an educational challenge and the members  get music-and social skills.
Not at least they can finance their schooling and other ambitions.
The members are mostly orphans or have difficult familiar backgrounds. See the video and enjoy!
