Various Artists - Abatwa: Why Did We Stop Growing Tall? CD (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 23-GBCD 049
“The Abatwa ("Pygmy") are one of Africa's most endangered peoples. This album is a stunning, spirited document of their deep and varied musical culture, it collects rough-hewn, tribal sonics from the Rwandan borderlands. One-string violins/ 11-string harps/ haunted solo & duo singing/ battery operated loop machines. The textures are strange and abstract but at the same time intimate and joyful.
A featured instrument is the 11-string Icyembe, one that has a resemblance not unlike a surfboard and when turned upright, stands taller than some of its Abatwa players."
