Abstract / Summary
Drawn to the rainforests of the Central African Republic by some of the most beautiful singing in the world, New Jersey native Louis Sarno travelled there in 1985 with a one-way ticket, a tape recorder and plenty of batteries. Nearly thirty years later he continues to live with a Bayaka community in and around Yandoumbé, a settlement that he helped found. Ethnomusicologist Noel Lobley has been in contact with Louis for the last eight years, working through his unprecedented collection of over 1000 hours of recordings that document the full range of music-­making and soundscapes of a single community of hunter gatherers for more than a generation. Louis continues to donate his recordings, images, and videos to the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford, with the long­term intention that his archive will benefit the Bayaka communities.
