Artists campaign for Sudan unity

Musicians and painters call for unity ahead of south Sudan's referendum on independence.

    Sudanese artists have launched their own campaign for maintaining Sudan's unity, a reality that has long evaded politicians in the country.

    The campaign comes as Sudan prepares to vote on a referendum next year on whether the south should gain independence from the north.

    Musicians, rappers, and painters call for solidarity and warn of grave consequences if the country splits.
