The Reminders had the rare opportunity to travel to Uganda for the B-Global Indigenous Hip Hop Summit in December 2015 with Words, Beats and Life. This long dream of more interaction in Africa was made possible by the USArtists International program. While in Kampala, we performed at the B-Global festival organized by the Bavubuka Foundation and our comrade, Babaluku. We also had the opportunity to share our words and music on several TV and radio stations. The best experience, though, was to connect with all the people there, collaborate on music and exchange our stories. We are looking forward to going back to Uganda and exploring more African countries soon!
This tour was partially funded by Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation through USArtists International in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
