CRANE PERFORMERS

With its dances and rhythms, the group «Crane Perofmers» will take the audience on a journey to East Africa. Ugandan dances tell stories, honor the king or accompany rituals and ceremonies. «Crane Performers»’ means of expression also include singing and music – with instruments such as the xylophone, the drums or the tube fiddle, a string instrument which is popular in Uganda.

During the RFI, the artists from Uganda will take part in the following events:
