Taste Uganda Concert DATE:  Friday May 18 | Sat 19 | Sun 20  – 2018

VENUE: Uganda National Theatre and Cultural Centre

Taste Uganda Background
Taste Uganda was born out of a passion to showcase the diverse cultures of the 67 ethnicities that comprise the Pearl of Africa and revive enthusiasm for the variety of music, dances, instruments, and language that are full of richness. Due to poor packaging, cultural music and dance have been slowly dying as a creative art form and there is a great need to upscale professionalism and respect for the traditional arts. Although it is rare to attend a event of decorum that is without cultural entertainment, rarely do Ugandans seek to attend cultural events outside of such formal functions. Through a new approach to showcase the beauty and richness of Ugandan cultures, Taste Uganda will engage families, young people, foreigners, and Ugandans from all walks of life to experience cultural entertainment in a new setting.

Taste Uganda Goals and Objectives

  1. Use the creative process to unearth different traditional music, dances, folk tales, and cultural practices and converse the diversity of Ugandan cultures.
  2. Document and transfer traditional music, dances, folk tales, and cultural practices for easy access to the public.
  3. Promote pride in Ugandan cultures and appreciate the cultures of other peoples, giving strength to an environment of tolerance and mutual respect.
  4. Allow opportunities for individuals, corporate companies, private sector, NGOs, event organizers, government institutions, and foreign agencies to understand the value of arts in society and work with artistic entities to boost employment.
  5. Celebrate the milestone of House of Talent East Africa’s 7 years of artistic creation and promote the work of the company to increase future opportunities for performance.
