Dear Mr Commander

Geoffrey Oryema says he’d rather use music than guns to resolve issues. One of the Ugandan musician’s songs is an open letter to rebel leader

Joseph Kony, asking him to sign for peace. The letter is cc’ed to the Ugandan President and the rest of the world.

Oryema was destined for the world of theatre. He studied art in his native Uganda, focusing on writing his own plays. But then, in 1971, his country turned into a dangerous and deadly theatre, when the notorious dictator Idi Amin Dada took power in a coup. Exile followed, first in Kenya, then in France. Oryema turned his attention to music and since 1990 he has released a string of internationally acclaimed CDs.

In this edition: a conversation with Geoffrey Oryema about his life, music and his country.

First airing: Monday 18:00 UTC
