About the Book

"Singing for Life: HIV/AIDS and Music in Uganda "presents a cultural analysis of hope and healing. A pioneering work in the growing field of medical ethnomusicology, "Singing for Life" shows how music, dance, drama, and the visual arts have been enlisted in the fight against AIDS in East Africa--from education to prevention and treatment. It shows how musical traditions have the power to both spread needed information and influence social behavior.
HIV/AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa is a widespread phenomenon that is the result of deep cultural issues."Singing for Life: HIV/AIDS and Music in Uganda "tells a compelling story that will appeal to students of ethnomusicology, anthropology, African studies, cultural studies, and medicine/healing. Written at a high level of engagement, but consistently approachable, it sets a benchmark for future studies in medical ethnomusicology.
