UConn Receives Collection of Recordings Preserving the Culture of Darfur

Over the past quarter century, the Darfur region of western Sudan has been plagued by famine, war, and genocide. In an effort to preserve the culture and traditions of the people of Darfur, actress and humanitarian Mia Farrow has toured Darfur and made videos of the region’s music and dance in order to preserve them for future generations.

This collection of the cultural heritage of Darfur has been donated to the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center for human rights at the University of Connecticut.

Here is a video on the effort to preserve the cultural heritage of Darfur.
