Will investigate a bit more. Sounds intriguing. Barz, apart from being a cool guy, is well-known for the book he edited with Cooley on fieldwork practises in ethnomusicology (Shadows in the Field). So, within the sometimes surprisingly insular field of ethnomusicology, he’s one who can connect disciplinary dots.
Of course, there’s a fair deal of research on culturally-appropriate ways to increase AIDS-awareness. Some focus on theater (like Hellweg in Côte-d’Ivoire), others on radio (like Stam in Thailand).
Interesting that ethnomusicologists will be hearing that call.
I started my own HIV/AIDS live chat support network (no AIDS org near me) on http://www.13km.com so I could meet more HIV positive or affected friends online, please stop in, we are not alone
