The group, called Spoon Youth, dances in the Namuwongo slum of Kampala, Uganda, and chose the Israeli singer Netta’s growing hit song after Israeli volunteers recommended it.
“The guys heard the song and just started dancing,” said 25-year-old Tel Aviv native Shiraz Arieli. She added that the routine was choreographed in a day, with volunteers getting the groupmatching t-shirts for the videos.
Netta took to Twitter to thank the dancers.
Spoon Youth is supported by an Israeli-Ugandan not-for-profit.
