PMC Lecture Series:"MUSIC, CONFLICT, AND SOCIAL CHANGE IN THE CONGO" BY DR. CHÉRIE RIVERS NDALIKO
Start Date: 2/28/2014Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 2/28/2014

Event Description:
The Democratic Republic of the Congo is simultaneously one of the most fraught and most culturally vibrant nations on earth. While there is growing global focus on the war in east of the country, there is little awareness of the increasingly powerful cultural practices of resistance taking place. Indeed, in the face of staggering statistics of death, rape, and violence, there is a growing body of musicians and filmmakers in the east of Congo whose work is catalyzing more and more meaningful social and political transformation at the local and regional level. Through a discussion of the historical, political, and cultural context surrounding the production of Art on the FrontLine, an edgy music video series, this talk addresses one provocative role of music and image in Congo’s current conflict.
