Uganda is country in the heart of Africa surrounded by Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda,Congo(Zaire) and Sudan. Basically it is an agricultural country but recently Ugandan National have made all ways possible to diversify their incomes from solerly farm crops to industry products trading,professional services like teaching etc. Uganda went through series of social and political problems for decades, but now I am happy to announce that all is history.

Entertainment is a great thing in everyones life. Ugandans in Kampala have advanced so much in the music industry.20 years ago, the industry had very few professonal music bands, and the greatest music perfomances were mostly engineered by schools choirs, and bands. As of today most children and others have come out in thr field and have made really great work of art in music - from traditional dances,hip pop,church and gospel music. The 'Obsessions'- are just students from Namassagali Secondary school,Mitara Maria sec. school has a great school band, Buddo Secondary is unique in their own way. Students from these school are cutting their way to the top in music, dance and drama. Ugandan Parents used to say how could your child only be in music and drama and expect riches in the family?!! However, these days it is the opposite,check it out on youtube "ugandan music"
