Circle songs inspired by the Pigmies and Mongos of Northern Congo
Intertwining rhythms, overlapping and responding voices, swaying bodies represent the characteristic features of these circular songs inspired by the Pygmies and Mongos of Northern Congo. There is a vital, repetitive impulse, a source of trance that transcends the rich harmony and polyphony, and a polyrhythmic sophistication that gives these songs (sung in Lingala, English and Japanese!) their unique nature.
