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!

Opira Morise Kato: “I composed this song for Pol FM radio station in Kitgum, because I admire their work. It is the best radio station in this area, because whenever you wake up in the morning you want to listen to it. They have shows about our culture, they inform us about family planning, about our rights and give information about games and soccer matches. This song is a tribute to the radio station.”
