bodyECOlogy: Ububele Ubuntu Concert

Ububule Ubuntu

Inspired by Ubuntu, we named as Ububele Ubuntu our 1st Art & Ecology concert in Africa, at Ububele Pre-school!

Ububele & Ubuntu are words that have their origin in the bantu languagues of southern Africa.

Ububele means kindness, compassion, empathy.

Ubuntu can be understood as humanity to others. Words like respect, helpfulness, unity, sharing, community, caring, love and trust are connected with the feeling conveyed by Ubuntu.

"One of the sayings in our country is Ubuntu, the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can't exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness. You can't be human all by yourself, and when you have this quality – Ubuntu – you are known for your generosity.

We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole world. When you do well, it spreads out; it is for the whole of humanity."

~ Archbishop Desmond Tutu,
explaining 'ubuntu' in 2008

We hope you all can be affected by our joy and love on 15th of May. Let’s spread it out... Feel it! Ububele Ubuntu powefull!!

All love,
Tatiana
