Time: 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM PST
Celebrated Ugandan musician, actor, and humanitarian Samite Mulondo uses the healing power of song and story to share his message of peace and hope. Beautiful, powerful, personal, and musical - “Resilience” is a play with the urgency of now combined with timeless stories of healing.?Samite tells his life’s story in this multi-media one-man play. He tells the story of his emergence from the nightmare of life under Amin and Milton Obote ("... when the birds stopped singing") to being a healer through the power of music.?Samite often includes a story or two in his concerts, but now he has turned his entire presentation inside out and the result is raw and bracing. This show includes an extended post-performance Q&A for authentic audience interaction.? "Rhythmic beats, floating melodies and impactful lyrics are the main components needed to create African music. These are also the elements Ugandan musician Samite Mulondo uses to spread hope, healing and peace around the world." - Grand Valley Lanthorn "Resilience is about blending beautiful traditional African music with stories of hope and tolerance.?Sharing difficult topics, Samite opened the doors for the us to gain new knowledge and empathy with grace and sensitivity.?Music definitely heals - A must see!" - Karen Wacks, (LMHC, M.Ed., MT-BC) Professor of Music Therapy, Berklee College of Music?
