'I feel like I'm being used to put this music out, to sing for the poor, the sick, old people, or to talk to some sad person sitting there," says Uganda's Samite Mulondo, founder of the nonprofit organization Musicians for World Harmony. 'All it means is giving time, and it makes the world a better place," he told rootsworld.com. The foundation's purpose is to enable musicians throughout the world to share their music to promote peace, understanding and harmony through its healing power. Samite's music is trans-cultural, enhancing his belief that 'we are all moved by the same desires, needs and emotions, regardless of the language in which those feelings are expressed."
Samite plays the ArtsCenter in Carrboro, Friday, Sept. 10. Tickets are $18. The show starts at 8 p.m.
