Beautiful, powerful,personal and musical - Resilience is a play with the urgency of now combined with timeless stories of healing. Samite tells his life’s story in this multi-media one-man play. He tells the story of his emergence from the nightmare of life under Amin and Milton Obote ("... when the birds stopped singing") to being a healer through the power of music. Samite often includes a story or two in his concerts, but now he has turned his entire presentation inside out and the result is raw and bracing.

lessons of Humanity: What my grandfather taught me

Samite has remarkable stories based upon his work with refugees and survivors of war.  A former refugee from Uganda, Samite has worked with groups as diverse as child soldiers in East Africa to cancer survivors in the American Midwest.  He has discovered a universal healing power in music. His tales are inherently dramatic, but they are filled with humor and insight inspired by his grandfather’s wisdom and the people he meets.  Interspersed with his stories are powerful vocals accompanied by African instruments.  He’s a gifted storyteller – you will never forget his message of humanity.

Journey to the soul of africa

Samite takes you on a unique journey to his Africa through stories, original images and music played on such African instruments as the flute, kalimba and litungu. Experience the gentle humanity of Africa’s people, its magnificent animals, and majestic landscapes as captured and illuminated by this gifted artist.  Samite’s performances range from workshop residencies and solo shows,  duos, trios, to his five piece band.
