Uganda’s Bouncing Cats: Hip hop with heart

Bouncing Cats is a new documentary of one man’s attempt to bring breakdance to the war-torn children of Uganda. The man is Abraham ‘Abramz’ Tekya, an AIDS orphan from Kampala who has a passion for hip hop. Abramz set up Breakdance Project Uganda in 2006 and gives free breakdancing classes to kids in Gulu and Kampala. His hip hop and breakdancing unites where ethnic divisions used to manipulate, offering young Ugandans an alternative identity to that of a former child soldier.
