Mulembe: Mbale meets New York
We are halfway through our journey. Today we stop in Mbale town, the original home of the Abayudaya Jewish Community. The Jewish community of Uganda was established over 100 years ago; it's a fascinating story, and truly amazing to participate in a Shabbat service where the ancient Hebrew prayers and songs are chanted with an African twist. The Abayudaya are known for blending traditional Jewish music with African harmonies, mixing Hebrew and several local languages. In 2005 they were nominated for a GRAMMY Award for Best Traditional World Album. Stretch out while you listen to this beautiful song.
