Welcome to EAF

The word Ensibuko means “The Origin” In relation to Ancient Africa; history, literature, knowledge and wisdom were passed on to succeeding generations through performing arts, especially dance. Dance is a valued facet of traditional Ugandan culture. Ensibuko is using a social and entrepreneurial approach to dance education. We use dance to influence social change, to mirror the issues in our world, the realities of life and give them a new narrative.

What people are saying about Ensibuko Arts Foundation

Siraji Koloto stands out from the rest of the dancers by his personality and unique concepts. I admire his determination, his thirst for greater artistic achievement, his socially relevant work, and activism in the dance community through EAF

The project is quite expansive, and the course covered a lot of territory that I hadn't explored yet. Highly recommend Ensibuko, thers's a great impact in the community.Ensibuko has personally helped me understand my dance carreer
Onyu Julius
Siraji’s knowledge of grassroots activism and expertise in bringing together communities through the performance arts has allowed him to develop an innovative approach to development. He understands that humans are moved to action and change when their unique values and interests are prioritized. Koloto is one of the most unique artists I've met.
Cassie Bingham
American Actist
Koloto strongly developed and found his identity as a versatile dance artist, given his breaking and African dance background, his choice of movements, flows with his ability and creating intricate patterns that not speak but take you on journey to enjoy dance in its purest element. Making Ensibuko's productions intimate.
