This album mainly features two Mangbetu groups -- the Mayogo and the Meje -- with drum ensembles, mass singing, exquisite likembe playing, and the Azande people to the west with xylophone and the intimate kundi harp. More harp by the Balendu and a unique recording explaining the language of sending messages by talking drums by the Lokele near Stanleyville (Kisangani). As The New York Times wrote: "Music from another world!" Historical recordings by Hugh Tracey. Includes a 20-page booklet.
