Sacred drums from Haiti, Kora from West
Africa, Brazilian Birimbau, Ingouma from
Burundi--pulsating rhythms from the skin
and wood of drums keeping alive the unwritten
history of life. The percussion instruments
speak the language of rhythm in this unique
record of the festival in Guadeloupe which
brings together the musical traditions of the
great cultures of West Africa, Peruhl, Bambara,
Senonfo, Malimko.
