These include selections from the Edward Evans-Pritchard collection of recordings from made in Zandeland in South Sudan between 1928 and 1930, and recordings of the Bayaka tribe in the Central African Republic, made by pioneering ethnomusicologist Louis Sarno. In addition to the recordings themselves (which are hosted on SoundCloud), a useful array of contextual resources is available, including video interviews with a number of leading ethnomusicologists, sound curators, audio engineers, and other related experts, as well as talks from workshops which took place during the project programme, and stills and video clips made by Louis Sarno in the Central African Republic.
