THE BURUNDI PEACE BAND

During and after the Burundian Civil War (1993-2006) the Twa community were persecuted in the Tutsi and Hutu dominated Burundi. The Twa, including members of this band and its leader Jean Philip Irambona, were forced from their homelands and fled to Tanzania. The Burundi Peace Band sing, dance and play music to heal the traumas from war and to remember their homeland.
