One of the founder members of Ganda boys, Craig Pruess will be in the country on weekend to conduct various awareness on charity work and promote music for the foundation.
 
He is scheduled  to visit  various  centers like  Katalemwa Children’ Home , Kawolo and Lugazi hospitals where the Ganda Foundation is involved in raising funds abroad to cater for some of the urgent needs of the hospitals.
       
The Foundation has worked with the Cancer Institute in Mulago and some other organizations to achieve its goals.  Craig is also in the country to organize the first ever concert for Ganda boys slated early next year according to the release dated, 28, November, 2011.
 
Ganda Boys was formed in 2008 through an exciting collaboration on the highly acclaimed 2009 BBC TV drama series, Moses Jones, which has been nominated for a 2010 BAFTA Award for Best Original Music Score. 
 
The founding members of the Ganda Boys, Denis Muggaga, Craig Pruess and Daniel Sewagudde, met while writing songs for the live band sequences for Moses Jones. 
 
They finished their first album, “The War of Love”, within six months, and the final CD is remarkable – a milestone in vibrant African fusion music. Although the origins of much of the Ganda Boys music are Ugandan, the album has a “United Africa” feeling to it, with a high level of live band production.
 
Dennis and Dan, formerly of well-known Ugandan group, DaTwinz, combine their dynamic and soulful vocals with Craig’s big sound vision.
 
Craig, an American living many years in the UK, is an international film composer and gold and platinum record producer and arranger, besides being a multi-instrumentalist, sound designer and world fusion expert.   
 
The Ganda Boys immediately started the Ganda Foundation charitable organization for bringing First World awareness to poverty and suffering in the Third World. Music is such an effective way to inform, galvanize and inspire people.
