MUSIQUES ET CHANTS POLYPHONIQUES DE LA SYLVE
71 minutes

The Aka Pygmies love dancing and singing: they hold rituals when they return from hunting, before collecting honey, at funerals, initiation ceremonies, during festivities, while putting a child to sleep...

The Aka Pygmies sing a complicated polyphonic song which they learn at a very young age. During group celebrations we can't dissociate their singing from their dancing. They also play a certain number of musical instruments, either belonging to them or which they've integrated whilst in contact with the villagers, also known as the 'Grand Noirs'.

The polyphonic songs on this disc were recorded during a celebration. This is a beautiful and clear recording of their music. Imported and hard to find!
