The evening is a fundraiser for Empower African Children, a Texas-based nonprofit that has helped develop educational and other programs to support thousands of Uganda children and their families for more than 15 years, according to the organization's website.
The 22 young dancers and musicians, ages 11 to 18, will share the culture of their East African nation through drumming, choreography and call and response vocals.
They have toured the United States every other year since 1994, performing at the Kennedy Center, the White House, Stanford University, the David Letterman show, and many other venues.
The young performers will also visit Encinal Elementary School in Menlo Park on Monday, Jan. 30, when the school will have a "Cultural Arts Day" to learn about East Africa. The troupe will start the day with an educational and inspiring show, according to Elizabeth Ouren of Menlo Park, a volunteer organizer of the event.
