Positive Generation by MSF
Positive Generation: Voices for an AIDS-Free Future is an album based on songs from HIV support groups in Zimbabwe, featuring performances by internationally reknowned artists Alejandro Sanz, Paula Fernandes, Estelle, and Oliver "Tuku" Mtukudzi, among many others. It was made by Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), an international humanitarian medical organization, and produced by Javier Limón, MMI's artistic director.
With this project, MSF wants to raise awareness about the reality of HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa, highlight the "positive" life of people on treatment, emphasize the importance of prevention of mother-to-child transmission programs, and alert WHO about the consequences of the current funding shortfalls on the life of thousands of patients.
The MMI collaborated with MSF to bring Berklee students Ali Amr and Ariadna Castellanos to the project. Vocalist and quanun performer Amr is featured in a song with Sanz, and Berklee Presidential Scholarship piano player Castellanos accompanies the Jimila Choir and David Broza.
