With the Lost Boys of

With the Lost Boys of Sudan Center, the use and making of the rebabba was restored. This traditional lyre, found among the Nuba, Dinka, and Nuer peoples, was traditionally made by young people as a rite of passage to adulthood. However, during the many years of conflict this part of their cultural heritage had been denied. To assist in restoring the rebabba's music, a simple design was presented along with tools and materials to make this type of lyre. The goal is to bring the rebabba back for use in composition and performance. Songs of the Lost Sudanese Boys have been sung in both Arabic and Dinka, two languages of Sudanese warring factions. This has empowered young people to tell the story of what it was like to grow up during the civil war. CURRENT STATUS: Continued work in Kurdistan is in the planning stages for 2012. A Drums of Humanity program extension to Baghdad and elsewhere in the country is currently being considered. In Indonesia the teacher/student exchange has become a model of positive relationships. The American drum circle approach has combined with the local colotomic (layered) rhythmic structure to become somewhat of a unique artistic expression. Programs continue in Yogyakarta and plans are being made to return. With the new country of South Sudan being established on July 9, 2011, a visit is planned to the area to assist with cultural rehabilitation through the development of musical instruments indigenous to the region. Funds for the Iraq trips came from: NAMM, the International Music Products Association; the Rex Foundation; a private donor; and Ethnomusic, Inc. Funding for the Daf in Iraq publication came from the nonprofit Percussion Marketing Council. Funding for the trips to Indonesia came from a US State Department grant. Funding for work with the Lost Boys came from Ethnomusic, Inc. Drums of Humanity is awaiting the 501(c)(3) status, expected by October 2011. RESEARCH AND EVALUATION: In all three locations, participants gave feedback about the effectiveness of the training and over 90% said these programs were very helpful. Narrative interviews, communications and final reports demonstrated that participants were highly appreciative of the experience, noting that it improved both their mental and physical well-being.
