Ugandan Musician to Perform at UW


March 20, 2009 — Samite, a world-renowned musician, composer and recording artist from the East African country of Uganda, will visit the University of Wyoming this month as part of African Awareness Week.

Samite will conduct a workshop at 4:30 p.m. Friday, March 27, in the Wyoming Union Gardens and perform in concert at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, March 28, in the Wyoming Union ballroom. Both events are free and open to the public.

Born and raised in Uganda, Samite delivers his mellifluous vocals in his mother tongue, Luganda, and plays the kalimba (finger-piano), marimba (wooden xylophone), litungu (a seven-stringed Kenyan instrument) and various flutes. He immigrated to the United States in 1987 and now lives in Ithaca, N.Y.

For more information on Samite's visit to UW, contact Kigen Arap Limo at klimo@uwyo.edu or Rod Garnett at rgarnett@uwyo.edu.
