This article exposes a way of re-framing the experiences of four European music therapists with local disadvantaged children in Gulu (North of Uganda, Africa) from a Community Music Therapy point of view. CoMT offers certain qualities that help to rethink conventional bounderies in their contexts and to widen the cultural sensitivity of the music therapists. The power of re-framing according to the context is the power of looking with other frames, the power of allowing other patterns to arise.
