African Field Recordings (Hugh Tracey)

A friend is working on this project. I've been familiar with Tracey's work for a while, having helped get it on CalabashMusic and such, but to see some video footage as well in this trailer from the Tracey archive is really, Really amazing.

Rogier Kappers' next film is about one of them, Hugh Tracey, an amateur folklorist who spent 40 years recording music in sub-Saharan Africa. - this from a guardian article about the director
