Honeywind - "Sounds from a Santal Village (India)"
Sounds from a Santal Village (India)
The Santals have a very original conception of sound. They consider their accoustic environment as consisting of three categories: sade, produced by striking together different objects; rak, which is made up of the calls of animal; and finally aran, human sounds, which are again subdivided in ror, speech, and rar, song. The recordings on the CD are arranged in the form of a soundwalk through a Santal village, lasting from early morning until night.
