#NilotikaCulturalEnsemble #Tuula | Nilotika Cultural Ensemble – Tuula
“TUULA is based on a Ugandan children’s song for a sharing game between friends. It is performed by a fifteen-piece band using only traditional Ugandan instruments and no electrified bass, guitars, modern drumkit, etc. The stirring vocals from Niina, a Hip Hop MC, add fire and energy to this unique and timeless composition.
The video for TUULA was shot in the forests of central Uganda and features the full Nilotika Ensemble and a local dance troupe of hyperactive teenagers in Baganda costumes. They dance a traditional courtship dance in a sun-dappled clearing of the ancient forest, surrounded by the many musicians of the Ensemble.”
