Learning from Uganda

A resource for UK primary schools and early learning.

Here are some videos of Africa and Uganda that are over-dubbed with music by International musicians. The music is merged so that the original soundtrack can be heard over the music when it plays, so at times you will also hear voices and singing too.

The videos have adverts added by YouTube in exchange for being allowed to include this commercial music free of charge. These adverts can be minimised by clicking the cross in the top right-hand corner. We feel that the music enhances the video more than the adverts detract and hope you will agree.
