about

Ugandans have triumphantly tapped the power of their traditional music to battle the AIDS pandemic. Performed with dramatizations and dance in settings all through rural Uganda, their unique blend of music and public health has helped make Uganda's record of success against HIV/AIDS one of the best in Africa. In turn, the traditional music of Uganda is revitalized and made contemporary. "Singing for Life" affirms the profound strength of a people’s music in promoting hope and positive change. 66 minutes. 26-page booklet with extensive notes.
