MUSIQUES DE CENTRAFRIQUE a trip in the heart of the country
Music played at events in communities (initiations,marriages, deaths ...), rituals, or to host local festivals. It is astonishing vitality and diversity of music of Central Africa. These songs reflect the natural environment which they are deployed and where they occur. From Bustling cities of Bangui and Bambari to villages lying in the savannah (Banda in the east,Gbaya in the West) to finish in the vault of the rainforest South in Ngbaka and Pygmies.
