BAKA PYGMIES - POLYPHONIC SONGS (GABON)
African Rainforest & Pygmy Peoples
A group of Baka women in the forest performing a song to bring good luck in the hunt (Baka Pygmies, Gabon).
"The night echoes with the Baka's singing: their voices wrap you round in silk, sweet as the honey dripping from the comb, hypnotic as a magic charm. In the crackling of the fires you enter a world of sounds Ð never heard before, unexpected, yet immediately familiar. You have the impression that you have already heard and seen all of this. Already experienced it."
