about

This album celebrates the musical genius of the Bayaka Pymies of the Central African rainforest. It includes traditional Bayaka music, soundtrack pieces from the lm, and entirely new creations which are the result of the musical collaboration in the forest between the Bayaka and Chris Berry, the lm’s composer and a musician of Africa music. Bayaka voices have been “sampled” before, but never before have the Bayaka been co-composers of crossover music, and they took to it with great enthusiasm, old and young, offering songs they had dreamed in the forest, putting on headphones for the rst time and laying down tracks.... music by CHRIS BERRY AND THE BAYAKA OF YANDOUMBE.
