Flame and Song by Philippa Namutebi Kabali-Kagwa (Sooo Many Stories/Modjaji 2017)
Philippa Namutebi Kabali-Kagwa's soul-warming memoir tells of a life enriched by song, literature, food and spirituality at the heart of a loving family. Born into a newly independent Uganda grew up in a volatile political landscape but never lacked the inspiration and protection of generations of friends and relatives. Her story travels from her expansive childhood homes in Uganda, to the novelties of living in Addis Ababa and Nairobi, before settling in Cape Town, her current home. But no matter how far her journey takes her, it's clear that home is not only about places but people.
