I am Kampire Bahana and Vuga! is my online home.
I live and write in Kampala, about this city, about Africa, music, art, resistance, love, women, culture, politics
The art installation “Salooni” which I co-founded has traveled to La Ba Arts Festival, Uganda, Chale Wote Street Art Festival, Ghana. Nyege Nyege International Music Festival, Uganda, East African Soul Train (E.A.S.T) residency, Kenya, Africa Utopia, London, Kigali, Rwanda and Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso
