It’s like a dream come true. I never thought that I’d be able to help so many people in my life; The Bus is like a bridge, bringing us together with music.
As a child soldier and survivor of genocide, I had first-hand experience with what it’s like to lose your entire family history and identity. Bringing traditional music to remote villages with The Bus has made me so happy, especially seeing the joy in children who are rediscovering their heritage.
Having villagers tell me that it was the first time they’ve seen these traditional instruments, or heard a performance since before the war, makes me very emotional. Now, they can touch and play these instruments for themselves. This is why The Bus is so important to me.
