The world-renowned musician, humanitarian and Founding Director of Musicians for World Harmony, Samite, will perform his one-man show based on his humanitarian work around the globe. 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.
The performance (free – with a talkback following) is a follow up to the Public Library's showings of the award-winning film, "Alive Inside" which features Samite and the work that he does. PLEASE INVITE FRIENDS WHOM YOU THINK WILL BE INTERESTED!!! It’s a magical performance.
