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 behaviour and presents a cultural analysis of hope and healing. Through case studies, song texts, interviews and personal testimonies, the author shows how music can be both a mode of promoting health and a force for personal healing. "Singing for Life: HIV and Music in Africa" 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.
