Journey into the heart of Africa as we celebrate in the shadows of Entebbe and Lake Victoria. Experience a unique African cultural evening on foreign soil as we travel halfway across the world without ever leaving the District. Join us for a special Friday night of Ugandan food, drinks, music, cultural dancing, diplomats, film, and more! Dress semi-smart casual and enjoy this unique party with the Ambassador and his staff at this African treasure of the Washington, D.C. area. (Indoor and Outdoor Celebration)
A) African Food with a Ugandan Flavor: Nyama Choma (beef served with kachumbari), goat stew (an East African favorite served with basmati rice and chapati), samosas, Ndengu (mungu beans in chicken broth seasoned with safari spice and cilantro), fruit, and more (TBA).
B) Ugandan Beer and other African Beverages: Sample the best and most unique Ugandan beers as well as other African treasures.
C) Special Ugandan Musical and Dance Presentation: Enjoy a world renowned presentation of an authentic Ugandan tribal dance. Dressed in full authentic Ugandan costume with unusual African instruments, the dancers will treat us to a very unique performance of Ugandan music and dance, along with a cultural explanation as to the each element's origin, style and meaning.
D) Diplomatic Greeting: Hear from the diplomats and feel free to schmooze the diplomatic staff.
E) Ugandan Art: Throughout the Embassy, the Ambassador has arranged for the presentation of special African artifacts and paintings unseen to most Americans' eyes.
