."..must reading for anyone involved in the global fight against HIV/AIDS, a book destined to become both popular and a classic text... Within its pages are precious stories of resilience, courage, and human-dignity-preserved during a crisis unimaginable to the average citizen of the industrialized world, or even to health providers and to artists." - Dr. Clyde Lanford Smith, MD, MPH, DTM&H, FACP, President, Doctors for Global Health
"The central strength of the book is that the subject is meaningful and important to human life, in a word - it matters, which is unfortunately too often not the case." - Benjamin Koen, editor, The Oxford Handbook of Medical Ethnomusicology
"Whether explicitly or by example of their work, the authors of this volume all make impassioned calls for further work. By amplifying the diverse perspectives and
media that shape The Culture of AIDS in Africa, this collection constitutes an outstanding contribution to understanding the impact of music and visual arts on illness and wellness. It will surely impact future directions of medical ethnomusicology, and it should become a useful resource in the arts, humanities, international studies, and allied social sciences." --Journal of Musicological Research
