Since its inception, the Bitone Troupe has acquired and exhibited incredible performance skills in music and dance. Our well-interwoven artistic presentations have not only thrilled Ugandan audiences, but have been recognized internationally.
The troupe has gained support of the arts and music community locally, regionally and internationally. This is exemplified by increased opportunities to perform and participate in performances, festivals, and music workshops. Bitone also performs in communities to create awareness of the social pressing issues such as malaria prevention & treatment, hygiene & sanitation, domestic violence, abstinence from sex campaigns, etc. These efforts have continually raised visibility and impact of the Bitone Center’s mission.
Invite Bitone to perform at your function or an international tour.
