Music, Culture, and the Politics of Health : Ethnography of a South African AIDS Choir Hardback

Description

This book is an ethnographic study of a HIV/AIDS choir who use music to articulate their individual and collective experiences of the disease.

The study interrogates as to understand the bigger picture of HIV/AIDS using the approach of microanalysis of music event.

It places the choir, and the cultural and political issues addressed in their music in the broader context of South Africa's public health and political history, and the global culture and politics of AIDS.
