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.
