 Feliciano dos Santos Biography

Feliciano dos Santos and his internationally acclaimed band, Massukos, uses music to spread messages of sanitation and hygiene to some of the poorest, most remote villages in Mozambique. As his songs provide inspiration and information, the nongovernmental organization (NGO) he co-founded provides tangible projects to improve health and lift villagers out of poverty.

Santos focuses his efforts on Niassa Province, where he was born and still lives today. Few places on Earth need his help more. Life expectancy is just 42 years, more than half the population lives in poverty, and 61 percent cannot read or write. Only 250 miles (400 kilometers) of paved roads run through the huge province, just 4 percent of homes have electricity, and not even 3 percent have running water.

Santos had more to overcome than the hardships of life in Niassa. As a young child he contracted polio from contaminated water, and he has been hobbled from the disease ever since. I dont want to see anyone else go through what I did because of unclean water, he says.

Today, one of the most powerful tools in Santos's fight for better sanitation is his music. As one of Africas leading musicians, he has toured Europe and released CD's, but the songs he brings to local villages are unique. The lyrics talk about washing hands, boiling water, preventing diseases, and building latrines. Words are set to local melodies, woven with traditional rhythms, and sung in tribal languagesand audiences love it. Many times entire villages attend his concerts, dancing and singing along. People dont like to talk about toilets or poor sanitation, says Santos, but if you put those messages to music they are no longer taboo.
