BAKA PYGMIES - PYGMY GUITAR (CAMEROON)

African Rainforest & Pygmy Peoples


Pygmy guitar, from Luis Devin's anthropological research in Central Africa (Baka Pygmies, Cameroon)
A recent Pygmy reinterpretation of a guitar (Baka Pygmies, Cameroon).

"Con quell'aria trasandata e distratta è piuttosto un artista. Un grande seduttore, tra l'altro. L'età precisa non la sa nemmeno lui, perché qui nessuno perde tempo a contare gli anni o i mesi o altre cose inutili..."
