Kinobe curates Education and Outreach programs to bring cross-cultural experiences and learning journeys to global students of all ages while introducing Africa’s cultural arts and social studies. As an educator, the Uganda musician performs, leads workshops and facilitates a unique understanding of how we connect as humans across cultural and national lines.

While his music may at first seem foreign, Kinobe illustrates the shared roots of current American and global musical styles with those of his native Uganda and its surrounding regions of Africa.
