The Epitome of World Music

Samite is a prolific multi-instrumentalist who masters in flute playing. Born in Uganda, he had to flee that area when he was younger. For a time he lived as a refuge in Kenya before he was able to land in America. On his new CD “Resilience” (release: September 14, 2018), his 11th album, he draws on those experiences. “At this time when I feel there's a lot of negative energy going around and people are feeling unsettled, we need to turn to music,” Samite reflects. “We all need to dig into ourselves and ask how do we make lives easier for other people around us, not just for ourselves? Music can help us find our way.” We’ll hear the song “Ntinda.”
