about

In April and May 2006 seven Baka Pygmy musicians made a historic visit to UK to tour with Baka Beyond. For most of them it was their first journey outside their rainforest home and for all of them their first trip outside Africa. Their remarkable performances were captured on a digital multitrack and here is the record of this unique tour.

A portion of the royalties of this album will be returning to the Baka and their community through the charity Global Music Exchange. (www.1heart.org)
