1998 release. Mbuti pygmies came out of the forest to barter with their Bantu neighbors -- Nande, Bira, Mangbele & Budu -- but it was also the scene of a unique musical interaction! Exquisite music from another world. One helluva party going on at Chief Baonoko's village -- tipoyi carrier songs, message drums, pygmies playing Bantu instruments, and their own forest songs. Historical recordings by Hugh Tracey. Includes a 20-page booklet.
