Watch this uplifting performance by the female-led United Adungu traditional band in the Bidibidi Refugee Settlement in northern Uganda at the Salam Music Program. Singing ‘Unity! Unity!’, this song is about women, mothers, and girls having to flee civil conflict in South Sudan, from firsthand experience, and about their hope for unity.

The traditional music element of the Salam Arts Program was created as a form of music therapy for all community members to process traumas they’ve undergone through music and dance, and has been successful in bringing together diverse ethnic groups within Bidibidi to build peace through music.
