Kika Troupe puts a modern spin on Ugandan traditional performances

It goes without say that with each new generation that comes into this world, a little bit of our native cultural practices slowly die out. Cultural troupes in Uganda have always played a huge role in keeping people in touch with their heritage through performances of a variety of folk songs and traditional dances from the different tribes/ethnic groups in Uganda. Armed with their big drums and a wide range of other instruments, Kika Troupe has even gone a step further by creating original compositions that fuse elements of our native songs and dances like the Baksimba with other modern styles/genres of music such as Hip-Hop to bring out a product that is fresh and appeals to the younger generations too.
