The African drums resound and one by one the children come dancing down the aisles in their brilliant Ugandan costumes with radiant smiles on their faces! Throughout Watoto's Concert of Hope, you experience the energy and sense the joy and hope that these beautiful Ugandan orphans have found!

Watoto means "The Children" in Swahili. Since 1994, Watoto Children's Choir from Kampala, Uganda has regularly toured the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia. Accompanied by a small team of adults, Watoto's performances are a soulful blend of native African rhythms, contemporary gospel music and ethnic dance. These children are among the more than 880,000* children in Uganda that have had the tragic and life-altering experience of losing one or both of their parents to AIDS. Now, through their lively and inspiring performances, the Watoto Children's Choir shares their unique experiences as well as their newfound joy and hope, which thrill and dazzle audiences everywhere!

Pity I only saw this advert on Thursday 13th December!!! I would love to have heard this choir of which I've heard such great reports.

Sorry you missed it Isobel. If you register with this site (maybe you are?) you will get a regular e-mail update newsletter (every week - 10 days) to alert you to things going on.

Isobel, Somewhere else on this website you will find details of the dates and venues for the Watoto Children's Choir concerts in Inverness and Brora from 3rd to 6th January 2008. I have been asked to get the publicity leaflets out via schools and churches, and this is happening now. The great thing is that they are returning very soon. The venues are smaller than CCC so it will be great if the venues are full each evening, but we hope nobody has to be turned away. I was at CCC on Wednesday last, and was aghast at the wonder of what the Lord has done to rebuild His precious children who are sincere in giving Him all the glory. Try to be there.
