Samite - "Lessons of Humanity: What My Grandfather Taught Me"
A multimedia performance by Ugandan-American musician, storyteller, and humanitarian, Samite Mulondo
The North Shore Music Association welcomes renowned musician and humanitarian Samite, performing Lessons of Humanity: What My Grandfather Taught Me, his solo show of stories, music, and visuals illustrating the resilience of the human spirit and the fundamental truth that we are all the same.
Taught traditional flute as a child by his grandfather in Uganda, Samite Mulondo went on to study western flute and became one of East Africa’s most acclaimed flutists. Samite has released ten internationally distributed CDs and has scored and appeared in films including Song of the Refugee, a documentary of Samite’s life (PBS, 1998), and Taking Root: The Vision of Wangari Maathai, featuring his original score (PBS, 2009). In 2002, Samite founded Musicians for World Harmony, an organization that enables global musicians to promote peace, understanding, and harmony among people. As a MWH ambassador, Samite travels the world, performing music and exchanging stories with victims of war, poverty, and HIV/AIDS.
