Probably one of the most prolific ethnomusicologists and field-recording collectors of the African continent: when you see Hugh Tracey credited on a release, you can be assured of good recording quality and detailed footnotes. Tracey was one of the first in his field who wanted to bring music from (mainly) south and middle Africa to western audiences, as opposed to simply documenting its existence. He even went so far as to adapt the classic Shona instrument, the mbira, to western musical modes resulting in the modern kalimba. This genuine passion contrasts quite distinctly with much ethnomusicology of the period, which took a clinical, even psychoanalytical approach (the diagnosis often being a so-called ‘primitivism’).Tracey also consistently credited individual artists wherever possible, a fairly basic sign of respect, but a convention that took most French and German ethnographic labels several more decades to adopt. On top of all of that, to reiterate, he made good bloody recordings.The record in question documents music from several groups in northern Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of the Congo) including the Medje (Mangbetu), Yogo, Abangba and Zandé people. Though encompassing a small geographic region, and mostly dance songs, the material is very diverse. The pieces recorded at the village of Chief Achille Ebandrombi-b of the Medje tribe, near Paulis, Zaire, are celebratory choruses of large groups with extensive instrumentation and a good deal of . Most of side B, on the other hand, is the work of talented solo musicians – including three pieces on the aforementioned kora with vocal accompaniment by Gabriel Ebogoma. You can find additional material by Ebogoma at the South African Music Archive Project, which has an incredible amount of material online - myriad recordings which have lulled me into many a 3 AM bedtime.The highlight for me is the very last track, which is strangely perhaps one of the most banal. The lyrics involve a local piece of gossip, told as a something of a fable warning youth of the consequences of unbecoming behaviour. The music is utterly haunting – slow clapping, simple chords on a harp (a rare instrument for the area) and a chorus of voices echoing and adding lines to the main narration. Suitably foreboding, given its intentions. It is a piece to which the lo-fi bedroom folk and pop of the US and UK in the 1980s is not unrelated.
