about

"Most of these songs on this album were inspired by traditional African and European melodies. Thanks to my dual cultural background- Walloon and Bantu, Belgian and Zairean- I discovered (and would like others to discover by listening to this record), the richness and diversity of the musics that are the foundation of our African and European repertoire. Returning to the musical roots- essentially vocal- of the people most underrated by the modern world, I became aware of the greatness and strength of the human musical scope of expression. Through the body, the breath, the respiration, the vibration if the vocal chords, and without the supports of elaborate instruments, the Pygmies keep on conveying- to those willing to approach to listen- the beauty and purity of one of the most ancient cultures. One of my dearest wishes is, through these recordings, to participate in bringing closer through understanding and respect for each culture- with, of course, a special attention to the people threatened by the triumphant materialism of the modern world." - Marie Daulne
