The Amarula Family is the leading comedy group in Uganda. Why are they called Amarula Family? We asked them whether the name Amarula had something to do with the Creamy South African alcoholic drink and the family said no. "No! it is not Amarula but Marwa" Marwa is a very popular Ugandan brew consumed by Ugandans in mainly the Central and Eastern regions of the country. The plural for Marwa in Uganda is Amarwa and the word sounded a lot like Amarula, so they decided to call their group The Amarula Family. They say they are not a solo act, not a one-night stand and not a band but a group or a family. When they perform, they do what the people want and their performances are very diverse.
