Bayaka Music From The Central African Republic


The music of the Bayaka people is featured in the upcoming feature film Oka! (no relation, we're still waiting on that OKA movie pitch)  which follows ethnomusicologist Louis Sarno's three-decade stay among Central African Republic's hunter-gatherers.

For the film's soundtrack, Chris Berry set up a multi-track recording rig and worked with the Bayaka to create songs out of what is generally an improvised and transient practice. Stream and download the striking "Yetoo's Dream" below.
