Tunaweza Music Band, based in Dar es Salaam and formed in 2008, has 13 members now, majority of whom are physically disabled. 

They chose the name TUNAWEZA to make a point: it translates roughly as ‘Yes We Can’.

“Our aims are to help ourselves by earning a living through doing something creative and expressing ourselves. At the same time we can educate the youths about very important issues like HIV or the need to respect and protect all the people with disability in general.”
