The African drums resound and one by one the children come dancing down the aisles in their brilliant Ugandan costumes with radiant smiles on their faces! Throughout Watoto's Concert of Hope, you experience the energy and sense the joy and hope that these beautiful Ugandan orphans have found!
Watoto means "The Children" in Swahili. Since 1994, Watoto Children's Choir from Kampala, Uganda has regularly toured the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia. Accompanied by a small team of adults, Watoto's performances are a soulful blend of native African rhythms, contemporary gospel music and ethnic dance. These children are among the more than 880,000* children in Uganda that have had the tragic and life-altering experience of losing one or both of their parents to AIDS. Now, through their lively and inspiring performances, the Watoto Children's Choir shares their unique experiences as well as their newfound joy and hope, which thrill and dazzle audiences everywhere!
