Opira Morise Kato – Can lobo (English subtitles)

Scandal Studios – Ugandan Recordings

Opira sings in Acholi-language and plays on a traditional Ugandan instrument called ‘Adungu’. He made this acoustic instrument into an electrical one. With some built-in pickups (out of an old radio) powered by batteries and two Sony HiFi speakers, he is good to go!

This new recording of Opira Morise Kato is called ‘Poverty of the world’. He sings about what happened and is still happening to the Acholi people of northern Uganda.

This is some piece of history telling!
