Together in Batwa, Uganda

Today’s sound takes us all the way to Uganda, where this recording from Colin Hunter was made, capturing a  local Batwa family performing a traditional tribal song and dance.

City version:

The reimagined sound is by Millie Wissar, who writes:

“We are currently facing a time when governments around the world understate the importance of indigenous communities, disrespect their ownership of land and threaten their legacy.

“This piece is inspired by these communities and aims to highlight the degree to which music can empower indigenous peoples worldwide and help preserve their memory, traditions and languages.”
