Kinobe is a Ugandan musician, creative arts producer, educator, and philanthropist whose work has been described as “some of the most exquisite music coming out of Africa today”. Since his youth, he has captivated audiences with his soothing melodies and upbeat world-roots rhythms that emanate from the diversity of the many traditional instruments he customized to develop his unique sound. The diverse textures of Kinobe’s music make it soothing, pulsing, meditative, invigorating and intimate —much of it a mix of original and traditional with global influences—but the sounds are uniquely his.
His performances and educational outreach programs provide a gateway into Africa through which he introduces Africa’s cultural arts, history and lifestyle rarely covered by mainstream media to global audiences most especially those in schools and colleges. These programs bring engaging hands-on experiences to local communities and can either be extended residences lasting 3-5 days with commemorative performances or short visits.
