Chinobay curates Educational and Outreach programs to bring cross-cultural experiences and learning journeys, introducing Africa’s cultural arts and social studies to global students of all ages. As an accomplished educator, the Ugandan musician leads extended workshops and presentations to bring the unique understanding of how we connect as humans across cultural and national lines.

While his music may at first seem foreign, through interactive sesions Chinobay illustrates the shared roots of current American and global musical styles with those of his native Uganda and its surrounding regions of Africa.

Chinobay has arranged and scored music for jazz bands/ensembles, Choirs, String quartets and Symphony Orchestras to enable global music students learn to play African music on instruments they are familiar with, and these sessions often lead to culminating performances together with Chinobay on stage.
