Pearl Rhythm Foundation
The Pearl Rhythm Foundation is a local Ugandan grassroots music and creative community that aims to strengthen an independent music scene in Uganda. Our objective is to bring together like-minded people to build, discuss and expose their ideas and talents to grow a unique music identity and network in Uganda.
As a platform to showcase these efforts, the Pearl Rhythm Festival was initiated in December 2012. The festival started off with the support of development partners like Alliance Française, Uganda German Cultural Society, and a collection of early supporters in Uganda’s private sector. It was first hosted by AFK/UGCS on Mackinnon road for two years (2012 and 2013), and then progressed to be hosted at the Uganda National Cultural Centre (National Theatre), where it has been based ever since.

In the last thee years, the Pearl Rhythm Foundation has through the festival and stage coach program featured and mentored some of Uganda’s leading world music and alternative artists, such as: Suzan Kerunen, Myko Ouma,  Kaz Kasozi, Most Wanted Band, Jamila Nasanga, Sempeke Bisaso, Hakim Kiwanuka, Jovan Kiyinji, Kinobe Herbert, Harry Lwanga, Jamal, Qwela, Joel Sebunjo, Irene Ntale, Clarissa Nabulime and Lillian, Ceasar Kajura and the city blend band, The Undercover Brothers, Arpeggio, Charles Obina and matata, Raymod Parwot, Sammy kasule, Afrigo  and Watmon Troupe.

The Pearl Rhythm Foundation offers a unique platform for those who aim to encourage the development of Ugandan cultural music, supporting the evolution of our traditional sounds and instruments, with an aim of creating a locally and internationally recognized identity for “Ugandan music,” while also improving the professionalization of the independent music sector in Uganda.
