This is rare footage, courtesy of Afrique Profonde (www.afriqueprofonde.org) from the Republic of Congo. This is a group of Babongo Pygmies playing jamming with ethnomusicologist, Marius Billy, in a spontaneous jam session with modern electric guitar and traditional African instruments.
These people are some of the last remaining Pygmies in Central Africa, and their way of life and cultural knowledge are endangered. Afrique Profonde, a nonprofit started by Marius Billy and Justin Perkins, is working to help them preserve their cultural traditions and secure their basic human rights. To find out how you can help preserve their culture visit http://www.afriqueprofonde.org .
