 When we see The Democratic Republic of Congo on the nightly news, we see scenes of bloody conflict . Rarely do we hear from the people of Congo themselves. The Congolese arts organization Yole!Africa has a new project, Art On The Frontline, to promote the work of Congolese filmmakers and musicians. 

Host Frank Stasio talks with Chérie Rivers Ndaliko, co-director of Yole!Africa and professor of music at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
