Pygmy polyphonies from North-Congo

Recordings and text: Nathalie Fernando
1 CD AIMP C / VDE 1339, 2011
Fruits of recent recordings (2005-2008) undertaken in the north of Congo (Brazzaville), this disc offers a cross-section of musical repertoires, including the most significant songs of the pygmy communities.  It affords us another look at these hunter-gatherers, and demonstrates the unity of a musical tradition, the practitioners of which are nevertheless spread across the whole forest of Central Africa in different groups.
