Ugandans have triumphantly tapped the power of their traditional music to battle the Aids pandemic. Performed with dramatization and dance in settings all through rural Uganda, this 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, Uganda is revitalized and made contemporary. SINGING FOR LIFE affirms the profound strength of the people's music in promoting hope and positive change.
