Artist in Residency

Beginning in November 2018, Foundry Hall is hosting Ugandan musician and dance instructor Samuel Nalangira.  Samuel was on tour with the Dance of Hope group that Foundry Hall hosted for a week in March 2018.  His residency goals are to teach and share his music, talents and culture through workshops and performances in the area and to work with local musicians and dancers to develop new cross-cultural work.

Samuel is an inspired, hard working musician, supportive and friendly teacher and open to opportunities in schools, after-school programs, youth groups, events and parties.

“It was such an amazing experience for the students to learn how to play Samuel’s handmade instruments and participate in traditional tribal dances.”
