Ethnic Boy, South Sudan
Ethnic Boy, Sudan. A young drummer tells his story through the trance of the drum. Each beat represents the thousands of other boys who escaped the violence of the Second Sudanese Civil war, which started from 1987 and ended in 2005.
This piece is an ode to the Lost Boys of Sudan, the over 20,000 Nuer and Dinka boys displaced or orphaned during the war. They survived, and their story continues.
