Song From the Forest.My life among the Ba-Benjelle Pygmies.


The author on hearing on the radio purely by accident, a uniquely beautiful piece of vocal music and fell hopelessly in love, It was this love that led him first to listen to hundreds of hours of ethnic music in pursuit of its source,and then to travel to the distant shores of Africa and into the ancient rainforests of the Central African Republic, to seek out its creators. They proved to be the Pygmies, a people legendary for their short stature and melodic wealth, he became inextricably involved in their lives, attempting, as he did, to record their music for prosterity.This is his facinating story.
