Singing for Peace in Uganda September 27, 2013
Since 2005, Rabbi Jeffrey Summit has been recording the music of a unique group of coffee farmers in Uganda. Using xylophones, drums, and traditional African instruments, they sing with a purpose: to model the power of peaceful relationships for a country in conflict. Their music has just been released on a new CD by Smithsonian Folkways Recordings. Our interview first aired in April.
