The newest album from 2008 Goldman Prize recipient Feliciano dos Santos and his band Massukos entitled “Cancoes da Nossa Terra” or “Songs of Our Land,” hit stands earlier this summer.
Santos was awarded the Goldman Prize for his efforts to promote public health in Mozambique and throughout Africa by implementing clean water and sanitation initiatives.
Santos’s band, Massukos, incorporates the sanitation message into music, performing in villages across Mozambique and abroad. By connecting with Mozambique’s rich performance traditions, Santos and his organization Estamos connect to villagers in a culturally appropriate way through music and theater.
