The Suubi Music and Dance Troupe at the Cambridge Secondary School was founded by Mrs. Kevin Kalule, the schools founder, to empower Ugandan youth and help them tell their stories
Suubi means 'hope' in Luganda. The Suubi music and dance troupe at Cambridge Secondary School.Is the brain child of the school's founder, Mrs. Kevin Kalule, and it has grown into a passion and purpose for our young Ugandan performers. It all started with Mrs. Kalule's desire to find different ways for the youth that she was sheltering to open up and share their experiences, however traumatic, so that they could heal and move on. She had tried a few remedies from her work as a psychiatric nurse, but they did not seem to help, so she thought of using African music and the sound of the drum as a starting point for story telling.
"We aspire to be an outstanding edutainment troupe, sharing our
culture with the world through African music, dance and storytelling."
