Abstract:

"Music Saved Them, They Say tells about the role music-making has played in community projects offered to young people in the poverty-stricken and often violent surroundings of Kinshasa, DR Congo. The young musicians described came out of complicated backgrounds - young adult men who were members of violent gangs, and young adult men and women who were as so-called 'witch'-children living in the streets. They believe that becoming musicians played an important role in (re-)constructing their lives, and they expressed this by saying that they were "saved by music". This book shares the findings of 3-1/2 years of research, with the hope to see the social music projects in Kinshasa inspire others to develop similar initiatives... in Kinshasa and elsewhere"--
