"Oh Uganda, Land of Beauty" is the Ugandan national anthem. It was adopted in October 1962, with words and music by George Wilberforce Kakoma. At just 8 bars of music, it is one of the shortest in the world, and it is usually performed with two verses in order to lengthen it. The Ugandan national anthem has been translated into the twenty-five major languages of Uganda.
