Description

In this interactive assembly, Ssuuna introduces students to the artistry of African culture through dance, music, and storytelling. Sharing music from his native Uganda using authentic African instruments such as the thumb piano and one-stringed fiddle, Ssuuna inspires students to compare and contrast cultures and to learn the importance of respecting cultural differences. The program ends in celebration as students play alongside Ssuuna and learn a song in Luganda, the language of Uganda.
