THE FOREST VOICES TOUR
diary

March 13th 2014

We'd made it all the way from Gbiné on two different Alliance buses - staying on the side of the road one night and at a hostel in Bertoua the second night. We were all tired from the bumpy road but after a brief stop in Abong Mbang we were warmly welcomed by the people of Lakabo. However, this was only after having to unload whole the contents of the roof rack into the bus, allowing us to pass under a fallen tree.

A few speeches were made in accordance with the Sous Prefet approved programme and then we were treated to some wonderful music from the Baka of Lakabo. Orchéstre Baka Gbiné took to the stage, playing into the night before setting up the projector and playing some films.

It was a great concert and everyone was in high spirits on the way back which meant that we all sang for almost the whole journey back to Abong Mbang, where we slept the night under the stars.
