Nightlife in Uganda

April 19, 2016

Photographer Michel Sibiloni spent the last few years in Uganda documenting the nightlife of an East African country for Europeans: “Before moving, my ideas about this place were distorted. All that we know about modern Africa is the horrors of the news bulletins. But in Kampala, the capital of Uganda, there are a lot of musicians, artists, expats, people like to spend evenings outside the house and have fun. ” Then Michel decided to show the other side of Kampala and challenge stereotypes about Africa.

“Birth, death, relationships, business, life - everything happens at an incredible speed, but no one really worries, everything is relaxed,” says Sibiloni. The name of the project Fuck It, he spied on a tattoo, which can be seen in one of the photos. In his opinion, it reflects the local nihilism, which he tried to document throughout the four years in Uganda.

“I wanted to give an opportunity with one eye to look at the night adventures that happened to me,” the photographer continues.The club culture, if you can call it that, really flourishes here - even Kampala’s infrastructure is set up for party-goers, so finding supermarkets that work until morning and even bank branches is easy.

The epicenter of the fun was Kabalagala, the tusochny district of the Ugandan capital - it is here that it is easy to meet at the party cops of all stripes and pimps, homeless and NGO workers, vendors of fried grasshoppers and criminal authorities, expatriates and village holy fools, exorcists-rich people and guardians of clubs with one of them. Alcoholics are drunk in Kabalagala, who are writing moralistic bills during the day, Askari archers are shooting prostitutes, and golden youths are burning parental money at pool parties and in convertible jeeps with guys from the neighboring junta. As the American Peace Corps blogger put it, “Kabalagala is Tijuana under acid.”
