We are thrilled to host Ssuuna this Friday June 3rd for two school-wide performances of MUJJE: COME TOGETHER in acknowledgment and celebration of our school's incredibly diverse student community.
Ssauna is a dancer, drummer, singer, songwriter, storyteller, and reggae artist, Ssuuna is a versatile, energetic performer from Uganda with a wide range of performing experience. Specializing in the endingidi, the engalabi, and the kalimba, among other Ugandan instruments, Ssuuna takes his audience on a cultural journey to his country with traditional songs, dances, and costumes.
In addition to having delighted and educated school audiences in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C., about life in East Africa, Ssuuna has performed at the World Bank, the Kennedy Center, the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C., and on numerous college campuses around the country, including Howard University, Louisiana State, George Mason, and M.I.T.
This program is made possible by a Young Audiences Access for All Grant and PTO funding.
