The young, talented and energetic team of girls and boys arguably the Finest Cultural Dance Troupe in Uganda today took to the stage to perform the Banyabo song, a very beautiful song loved by all ladies and mothers in Uganda. No wonder it was the theme song for the 2018 most successful concert, Rema Namakula’s Banyabo.

Clad in warrior- like attire, the team opened the act with breathtaking rhythms of African drums that indeed climaxed the well organized show sending a butterfly feel into stomachs of all revelers.

A panpipe sound that opened the concert song was played with local African Instruments, rich in melodies and put a very unique feel to the song. A team of very beautiful young girls who joined the stage put up very energetic dance moves picking motifs from the different cultural dances in Uganda, a style that exhibited creative brilliance at the show.
