Opira Morise Kato: “This song is about an illness we call ‘lucluc’, also known as ‘nodding syndrome’. It affects many of our children in northern Uganda and we don’t know what is causing it or how to heal it. Some people think that our children are being haunted by revengeful spirits called Cen.”

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!
