Crossing Borders Music promotes the music of Ugandan composer Justinian Tamusuza, who draws on the musical traditions of the Baganda people. He also teaches music composition at Makerere University in Kampala. As there are over 40 distinct ethnic groups in the country, Tamusuza encourages his students to draw on the music traditions of their own ethnic group for inspiration. Crossing Borders Music has premiered a number of Tamusuza’s students’ compositions.
