ACDarts' regular wedding performances typically showcase a wide range of traditional and modern African songs and tunes with shared cultural origin, but a particular speciality in Ugandan melodies and dances such as Mwana Wange and Tweyanze Ngoma.

Their repertoire can include storytelling, singers and dance choreographers, offering a truly immersive experience for your wedding guests and they can play for up three hours.

Immensely talented, their quality of performance will be unmatched and is certainly unique.

    What can I say about the ACDart’s singers? They were simply amazing. They were everything I wanted and more, their singing was breath-taking, as was the joy and happiness they brought with them when they sang. They were every I had wanted and much more. They made the day very special and they were my favourite part. All the guests were blown away as they came down the aisle. I’m glad people took videos so I can watch it for myself. They also did an extra performance for us whilst we were eating and said some lovely things to myself and mike. If I had my day over again I would not hesitate to have them back. I still get emotional thinking about it now. They were lovely nice people who looked and sounded fantastic who looked like they were enjoying themselves as well. The guests are still talking about them now and I think for many more months/years to come!

    Once again, many, many thanks for the superb performance at Catherine and Rich’s wedding – it exceeded our expectations and you certainly delivered the ‘surprise and delight’ that we planned! People besieged me that evening, saying how moved they were and asking for more information about you!
