KINOBE (pronounced chi-no-bay) is a Ugandan singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist whose work has been described as “some of the most exquisite music coming out of Africa today.” For more than 15 years, he has captivated audiences with his soothing African rhythms, vocals and powerful world-roots-dance melodies.
Kinobe has shared the stage with other celebrated artists including Baaba Maal, Angelique Kidjo, Salif Keita, Youssou N’Dour, Oliver Mtukudzi and Hugh Masekela—and has released 10 albums and CDs.
The “Dance of Hope” tour features a troupe of children Kinobe mentored in Ugandan orphanages and refugee camps.
Through his Dance of Hope Foundation, Kinobe is dedicating his life to the transformational power of music and dance and to bringing love and joy to people of all ages for the sake of building a more peaceful, healthy and compassionate world.
