This chapter presents an interview with the Youth Drama Group of the Voluntary Service Trust Team in Uganda. Conducted in August 2001, the interview reveals the role played by music in the prevention and control of HIV/AIDS in the community where the Youth Drama Group performs. The group members also talk about what they feel when they sing about HIV/AIDS, how their music and drama can help those people who are suffering or dying from the disease, why they target young people, and other AIDS prevention measures that are available locally in their community.

Keywords:   interview, Youth Drama Group, Voluntary Service Trust Team, Uganda, music, drama, AIDS prevention
