Rough-hewn, tribal sonics from the Rwandan borderlands. One-string violins/ 11-string harps/ haunted solo & duo singing/ battery operated loop machines. The Abatwa ("Pygmy") are one of Africa's most endangered peoples and the otherwordly music on this album reflects the precariousness of their situation. Produced by Ian Brennan (Hanoi Masters -GBCD21/GBLP21- & Khmer Rouge Survivors -GBCD36/GBLP36-) this is the fourth installment in Glitterbeat's 'Hidden Musics' series.
