**Kafulu Xenson 'King of Peasant' is a FAIR PLAY 2011 WINNER**

The video is set in Kabale, Southern Uganda. Kiga Dancers are choreographed to dance in a circle. The circle is the king's area of jurisdiction. They are painted by an artist (Xenson) to create synergy between art, music, dance and the drumbeat. The body paint depicts symbols that portray various social and cultural themes like war, endurance, unity, wisdom, fighting, triumph etc. This forms a backdrop for the king of peasant to advise his people.
