Traditional music from Cameroon and Afghanistan.

1. Music by the Fulani, an Islamic community from Northern Cameroon. In the recordings, made in circa 1980, repetitive, hypnotizing patterns of an oboe player and a couple of drummers.

2. The LP L’Afghanistan Eternel, an album released in 1979 with recordings from 1973. A Taliban doctrine that will declare all music a taboo, is in Afghanistan in 1973 a bad dream in the distant. In the relative peace of the early 70s Jean_Benoit Kauffman, a producer who travels through Afghanistan, accomplished brilliant musical missionary work when he records the singing of Tanbaku and Nahim, just as their beautiful playing on the long-neck luts tanbur and rubab. They sing songs about love and a rich heroic past.
The album ‘L’Afghanistan Eternel’ is a fascinating  snapshot of a musical tradition that got some hard blows in the past decades and was almost erased by a group relicious fanatics.
