THE ABODE PROJECT IS A NON-PROFIT ORGANISATION BORN FROM THE ESSENTIAL PILLARS OF THE HOUSE MUSIC COMMUNITY. 

REWIND. The ABODE Project Documentary is the story of a successful music promoter who gave up his affluent, superficial music industry lifestyle to transform the lives of children in a small town in East Africa. 

Presented by Kai Cant (co-founder of ABODE and pioneer of The ABODE Project), produced and directed by Emily Chapman (91 Productions), filmed and edited by James Chapman (Strange Company), with love and support from The ABODE Project volunteer group.

REWIND..

..begins by exploring the growth of the ABODE brand world-wide and the people behind it before we follow their journey to the small town of Kabale in Uganda, to officially launch The ABODE Project.

We experience the life-changing work of a group of volunteers who travel from the UK and Ibiza to Kabale, to build the first official ABODE school, laying the foundations to change the lives of the children in this small East African community, forever.
