Samite

Biography

Samite was born and raised in Uganda. His musical training began with a traditional Ugandan flute but he was such an accomplished player that a teacher soon introduced him to the western flute. Samite eventually fled the political instability in Uganda and ended up in Kenya, where he played in western-influenced bands. His love of traditional music won out, however: on solo gigs, he began singing in his native tongue (Luganda) and playing original compositions on traditional instruments. His comforting music has found many fans; Samite now calls Ithaca, New York home.
