The flute is our symbol of choice and inspiration, because:
- It produces dynamic, beautiful and sensibility music which caters for different emotions and moods drawing attention without being overtly intrusive, gently awakening without crudely shocking, stimulating happiness and creating a conducive atmosphere for deep reflection and creativity.
- It is the only musical instrument known to us which is found in all world cultures. Like the red blood that flows in all our living bodies despite our external differences, the flute blows in all our living cultures.
The fact all world cultures could spontaneously (but separately) create and intrinsically enjoy the sound of the same simple hollow pipe, is proof enough that we are all equally human. We believe that the only way to create world peace and harmony, is by emphasising the human commonalties, as we respectfully enjoy, and get enriched by, the diversity, variety and versatility in all human cultures.
Ndere Troupe is Africa ‘s dancing encyclopedia
In Africa, written words did not exist thus Africa’s cultural history literature, knowledge and wisdom were recorded and passed on to succeeding generations through the medium of performing arts, music, dance, story telling and poetry.
Pride in Education In efforts to salvage and conserve African heritage, Ndere Troupe performs a repertoire of more than 40 authentic Ugandan dances and songs accompanied by various indeginous percussive, stringed and wind instruments. The Troupe engages in various projects aimed keeping African generations educated about traditional entertainment and also uses traditional entertainment to spread knowledge about such current issues as modern farming techniques and HIV/AIDS.

Our Vision is to rekindle, rehabilitate, galvanise, promote and sustain the positive sense of pride, confidence, self reliance and efficacy, of the Ugandan (African) person as a respectable, rightful, equal, admirable, responsible, relevant and contributing member of the global human family.
We aim to diligently research into, carefully master, respectfully develop, constantly update, creatively beautify, articulately present and diplomatically represent Uganda’s (Africa’s) indigenous civilisations, endowments, values, arts and cultures as a promotion of our positive identity; constantly keeping them at standards that consistently meet and serve contemporary and future tastes, needs and intellectual expectations; using them to cause positive socio-economic transformation at individual, community and national levels; linking them to the rest of the world to foster international understanding, cross-cultural appreciation and enrichment; safeguarding, preserving and propagating them for posterity.
