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

I also DJ and have been lucky to open for acts like The Black Madonna, DJ Maphorisa and Diplo in Uganda. In 2018 you can catch me playing in Nairobi, Kenya for Africa Nouveau, Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso for Africa Bass Cultures, Reunion Island with Sauvage Soundsystem, Sonar Festival in Barcelona, Spain, Strange Sounds From Beyond in Amsterdam, Atlas Festival, Morocco and at Dada Shanghai and Beijing.
