“From the dusty playground to the international stage”, this is how CNN described the sensational success of the Ugandan hip Hop/breakdance formation “Tabu Flo”, translating as “chaos that flows”. Abdul Kinyenya Muyingo, also called Abdanger, is one of the dancers from the Tabu-Flo team, who paid the ESM a visit. On the 19th and 22nd January 2016, he performed funky and groovy moves to the right beats with students from the Secondary School.
Uganda is often associated with dictatorship and civil war. But it also has the youngest population in the world. Nearly 50 percent of Uganda’s population are minors. It is therefore hardly surprising that a hip Hop/breakdance project such as the one from Tabu Flo struck such a significant chord. “We had so much energy, and we needed to put it somewhere”, said Abdanger. As hip hop and breakdance are much more dynamic than traditional African dance, the choice was not difficult.
