Samite, TED Talk speaker, world-renowned musician, and photographer, has remarkable stories based upon his work with refugees and survivors of war. A former refugee from Uganda, Samite has worked with groups as diverse as child soldiers in East Africa to cancer survivors in the American Midwest. He has discovered a universal healing power in music. His tales are inherently dramatic, but they are filled with humor and insight inspired by his grandfather’s wisdom and the people he meets. Interspersed with his stories are powerful vocals accompanied by African instruments. He’s a gifted storyteller; you won't forget his message of humanity.
