I was invited to Uganda today. I suspect somebody pulled out or became unavailable at the last minute, but as it turns out, I’ll be at Un-Convention 49: Doadoa, East African Performing Arts Market ’13 from the 6th to the 11th of May.

I’ve travelled a fair bit, but I’ve never been to Africa and I’m really looking forward to finally getting there. It’s kind of short notice, and completely out of the blue – but I’m going.

Of course, six days in Uganda is only going to give me a first little taste of that massive and diverse continent, but it’s a start – and more than anything, I’m really looking forward to discovering the music.

You think you’re having one sort of day, then all of a sudden, something comes along and you’re having another sort of day. Surprise.
