Description

Zambian musician John Chiti, a person with albinism, uses his music to promote inclusion of people with disabilities. The film follows John in Livingstone as he engages the local deaf choir. Together they practice and perform his new song for a public performance which advocates for inclusion. The film also shows the personal challenges that people with disabilities face in daily life. This unique group of performers uses the power of music to highlight that disability is not an inability. Producer and director: Musola Cathrine Kaseketi.
