'Baka Beyond'

African Dance meets British Folk

After seeing a documentary on Channel 4, Martin Cradick and his wife Su Hart packed a tent, tape recorder, camera, guitar and mandolin, and headed off into the forests of Cameroon.

There they spent six weeks living, hunting, gathering and playing many hours of music together with the Baka Pygmies.

From this experience came two delightful recordings, Heart of the Forest and Spirit of The Forest, which led to the birth of the band Baka Beyond.

The rhythms of the hunter-gatherer Baka People from the Cameroon rainforest resonate with musical styles from all around the world.

Baka Beyond use them to tie music from different genres together. Also carried in these rhythms and in all Baka Beyond performances is the sense of joyous celebration and inclusion that the Baka bring to all their music. The band brings musicians from different cultures and backgrounds together in a seamless celebration of the Global Village.

After 21 years of touring around the world Baka Beyond's live show has evolved over the years. The current show includes a multi-media element.

Videos from the Cameroon rainforest are projected behind the band, cleverly synchronised with the live music so that the Baka become part of the live show.

Baka Beyond's live show includes song, dance, percussion, musical virtuosity, videos and big smiles all round.
