Okony Tumangu Tim literally means ‘Help Tumangu Team’. Tumangu is a small village in Kitgum district in northern Uganda. Most of the thirty-three group members are women. They dance and sing about issues that are important to their community, such as land, sickness and war. Besides the choir and dancers, the group consists of a lead singer, two ladies playing bila and whistle and two drummers.
Okony Tumangu Tim: “This song is about how everybody -the young people, mothers and fathers- should get together and work hard to find a way to develop this area.”
