ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
SSUUNA: is one of Africa’s most talented and endearing cultural ambassadors; a performer and teaching artist whose smile and warmth embodies the gracious spirit of Africa. He is also a dancer, percussionist, singer, songwriter, storyteller and recording artist from Uganda with a wide range of performing experience. Raised in a small village by grandparents in a time of civil war and political turmoil, He turned to the Ugandan traditional music to alleviate the poverty, hopelessness and suffering. As a result, his musical influence was born. Encouraged, natured and reinforced by his elders, these experiences bestowed a priceless cultural education and entertainment—inspiration that catapulted him into teaching tolerance and diversity through performances, recordings & workshops around the world—now, for more than 15years.

Join SSUUNA in his fabulously gentle, yet high-spirited dramatic and musical delivery of African songs, stories and principles that celebrate the gift of life—a bridge that connects all rhythms of various beings and nations. SSUUNA’s solo shows are not only full of energy and command undivided attention; they captivate audiences into participation while promoting authentic East African art, culture and literature. Through an exotic fusion of traditional and contemporary East African music, dance and storytelling accompanied by traditional instruments such as the Bowl Lyre, Thumb Piano, Tube Fiddle, Engoma and other African Drums, SSUUNA takes the audience on a crucial but delightful cultural extravaganza—introducing the wide continent of Africa and its many cultures that share a common thread.

It is his hope that the audience will gain an understanding of African dance, drumming and storytelling as essential aspects of history, communication and a human cultural experience. Most important, is that we all experience our cultural similarities and walk away deeply respecting the differences. Also, as a certified teaching artist, SSUUNA makes it a point for his programs to address the 21st century learning skills: Critical thinking, Creativity & innovation, Collaboration and Cross-cultural understanding.

You Truly Bring the Lessons of the Elders
I've not listened to the entire CD yet but so far I am groovin' on Kowa and She is Everything! I appreciate the old world sound mixed with a flavor that I can enjoy today. I love it when an AFrican artist brings so much of who they truly are to the music they give to us around the world! One Love...SSUUNA you bringing it to the Masses!

You are da (music) man!
Ssuuna, this CD is so rich and full of passion, joy and pain. And the way you've fused the modern and traditional instruments to create a very laid back, cool, international vibe is truly art. I love the messages and hope that it touches everyone who listens to it. Looking forward to the next one! KLIA...

Ssunna, you are an amazingly, enriching, traditonal, Ugandan wonder! Your flavor is more riveting during a LIVE performance and I'm so glad to have been able to witness your marvels during your CD release at Mango Cafe. Thank you for taking pride in your culture and appreciating the blessings that others less fortunate don't have! Gob bless you!
