Expressions welcomes the worldly music of Samite for this performance. Originally from Uganda, Samite has made his home in Ithaca, New York for many years. Billboard Magazine says “Samite wraps his warm voice around melodies that seem to rise up off the Ugandan plateau, caressed by his kalimbas (thumb pianos) and other native instruments.” Percussionist Jeff Haynes accompanies Samite on djembes and congas among other instruments. This web-only version of the concert features performances not seen on the televised episode. Samite performed in front of a live studio audience in July 2008.
