THE FOREST VOICES TOUR
Where did we go?
Cameroon is situated right where the Western bulge of Africa turns due south. As well as having a coastline it is bordered by Nigeria, Chad, Central African Republic, Congo, Gabon and Equatorial Guinea. They call themselves "Africa in miniature". Indeed they are, having more than 260 languages and representatives of practically every way of life, habitat and climate that you can find in the whole of Africa.
The Under the Volcano Festival that Global Music Exchange organised in 2010 showcased Cameroon's rich and diverse culture. At the festival in Limbe traditional music and dance was performed from 7 of the 10 regions of Cameroon. The Eastern Region was represented by musicians and dancers from Gbiné. For most of them, this was their first journey out of the forest region.
THE FOREST VOICES TOUR took place in the Eastern region of Cameroon except for a concert in the capital, Yaounde, for the British High Commission.
Our starting point was Gbiné, the Baka village 10km north of Moloundou on the Congo border. . . . .
