British Academy Award nominated musicians, the Ganda Boys, take on humanitarian work in Uganda.


Denis Mugagga and Daniel Sewagudde have been well-known Ugandan musicians, singers and songwriters for many years, first bursting onto the international African music scene with their big hit “Mdomo” during 2003.


Resident in the UK since 2001, Denis and Dan have gone on to contribute to many multi-media projects, working tirelessly on concert programmes across the African community diaspora, culminating in their collaboration on the award winning BBC-TV drama series, Moses Jones.  



ganda-boysThey not only appeared in the live band sequences on screen as performers, but they also contributed to the script development with series writer, Joe Penhall.


Denis and Dan went on to found the breakthrough African fusion group, the Ganda Boys, with fellow Ganda Foundation founder, director, and world music specialist, Craig Pruess.


Ever since registering with the UK Charities Commission, they have gained key in various sectors of society and governance.


They are currently in partnership with World Peace One to combine their music talents and humanitarian hearts for the global stage.






The Ganda Foundation was established during 2009 by Denis MugaggaCraig Pruess andDaniel Sewagudde of the GANDA BOYS music group to empower sustainable community development in Uganda. The Ganda Foundation (GF) is registered as a UK not-for-profit charitable organisation. 


It has been operational on the ground in the health and education sectors in Uganda since since its founding. The Foundation’s focus to date has been on specific interventions to deliver immediate people-centred benefits in the Buikwe District, including the Kawolo Hospital and the Lugazi Community Primary School, through the provision of targeted equipment and facilities investment.


The Ganda Foundation’s public profile in Uganda received a dynamic boost with a national fund-raising concert in Kampala in the presence of the Queen of Buganda, the Nnabagereka, Sylvia Nagginda in April 2013.


Read more: The GF, working in partnership with Asma Earth Tech (AET), has scoped an ambitious Water, Waste & Energy (WWE) Programme for Uganda, with a pilot project being implemented in the Buikwe District.


This programme of work has the support and Sponsorship of Central Government, cross Party Local Parliamentary MPs, the Kingdom of Buganda, and the District Council of Buikwe. 


The GF is now seeking to build on their existing Health and Education activities and the proposed WWE activities in Buikwe, to formalise a District-wide Empowered and Sustainable Community (ESC) Programme of work as a Model Community for Uganda.


The GF is also partnering with World Peace One (WP1), a US-based Charity and Foundation, on its Education and Communities Transformation focused activities, an area of particular expertise for WP1.  This expertise will be appropriately integrated into the GF’s ESC scope of work in Buikwe as the projects continue to be refined.


The project activities under the Sponsorship of the GF are supplemented by the musical creativity of The Ganda Boys, whose position in Ugandan creative and popular culture, provides a strong and visible platform for focusing on the GF’s people and community-centric development goals and project objectives.

saban11The Saban Theatre has been both a significant cultural and architectural landmark for Los Angeles and Beverly Hills since its opening as the Fox Wilshire Theatre on September 19, 1930. It was originally designed with 2500 seats by noted theatre architect S. Charles Lee to be a major film presentation house, even including a stage for Vaudeville acts before the films.

Over its 85-year history, the Saban has been the site of numerous film premieres, exclusive first-run film engagements, live concerts and touring Broadway shows. Despite several renovations, the interior remains mostly intact with its columned two-story rotunda lobby, spacious orchestra and balcony level seating for 2,000, and its silver, gold and black proscenium and organ screens. The connection with architect S. Charles Lee, a long-time resident of the city of Beverly Hills, makes the Saban significant also as an example of Lees transition from the French Regency style of the Tower Theatre and other Los Angeles Theatres to the nascent Art Deco style that would come to dominate movie palace architecture in the 1930s.

saban7The Saban Theatre opened as the Fox Wilshire Theatre and for several decades was one of 20th Century Fox’s premiere theaters, serving as a movie palace until a 1981 renovation converted it into a stage venue. It was operated by the Nederlander Organization from 1981 to 1989. It is now regularly used as a live performance venue for comedy, music, television, film shoots, screenings, and community intercultural events such as PaleyFest.?Temple of the Arts has owned and operated the theatre since 2005.
