Music for Change in the Congo

Music is a tool that is being used in the DR Congo not only for for expression and creative output, but also for restoration and reconciliation.

As young people are given a voice and the opportunity to express themselves through their music, a movement of communication is opened. Listening to these young musicians share their stories, their struggles, and mostly their hope for the future is inspiring.

Through @kitoko_oyo I was able to meet and spend time with this movement of young creative artists in Bukavu. Getting to hear their music, listen to their stories, and to spend time photographing them was really special.

Kitoko Oyo is sharing the stories of hope and beauty from Congo. Highlighting the talented people bringing about positive changes in this country. Check out @kitoko_oyo and support this project!
