Percussion Discussion Africa


Percussion Discussion Afrika came together as the result of one man's dream: already a celebrity in the Ugandan community, Omwana We Nsenene Ssewanyana has been performing and recording for over twenty-five years. To Kampala's press he is the 'King of the Congas.' But, though renowned for work with dance-hall giants the 'Afrigo Band,' his musical roots lie far from the nightclubs of Uganda's big cities.

Percussion Discussion Afrika came together as the result of one man's dream: already a celebrity in the Ugandan community, Omwana We Nsenene Ssewanyana has been performing and recording for over twenty-five years. To Kampala's press he is the 'King of the Congas.' But, though renowned for work with dance-hall giants the 'Afrigo Band,' his musical roots lie far from the nightclubs of Uganda's big cities. Ssewanyana's first instruments were not the congas, but the nankasa; mpuunyi; namunjoloba and engalabi - traditional drums played by the tribal peoples of East Africa for centuries. Sadly, these instruments (along with traditional harps, flutes, fiddles and xylophones) are rarely heard.

But now with PDA, Ssewanyana brings them back from obscurity straight onto the world stage. It has taken over ten years to pull together the resources and musicians which make this project possible. To Ssewanyana and his song-writing partner Michael Musoke, Percussion Discussion Afrika is a dream come true. Read more on Last.fm.
