This is an Aba Taano video.
Aba Taano are a dancing and vocals group from Kampala, Uganda.
They often go to Europe, especially Spain, to raise money for an orphanage in Kampala. However, there was a threat that their tour of Spain would be canceled this year. So many concerts had been nixed because of the economic crisis, particulary sharp in Spain, that they either would have to cancel the whole tour, or find gigs in other countries. They managed to solve this by playing in the Netherlands.
They played in Amersfoort on 31 May. On the same day, in the evening, they played the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.
On 1 June, Muiderberg, 2 June in Valkenswaard. 3 June Lochem. 4 June, Beverwijk. 5 June, Wijk bij Duurstede. And 6 June in Hilversum; where we saw them.
Both conductor Weierink and Camerata stayed on stage for the second part of the bill.
This is a video of Mozart’s KV 242, then played by three pianos; unlike the two pianos in Hilversum.
Then, the Jussen brothers left, but conductor Weierink and Camerata stayed on stage for the third part.
Aba Taano came. During their second song, there was an experiment of African vocals, backed up by European classical instruments.
There are various influences on Aba Taano. From within Uganda; one song dates from the times when Uganda was a kingdom. But many of the songs are not in Ugandese languages, but in Swahili (first language to few, but second language to many East Africans); English; or Zulu.
On their album, The Joy of Africa, 7 out of 18 songs are in Zulu. One is in Xhosa (also South African). 5 are in English. 3 are in Swahili.
One song is in Sotho and Zulu (both South African), English, and Luganda. One is in Luganda.
