Fernando Ribeiro - Botswana (GFR, 115)

01. Botswana (17:18)

This recording collects excerpts of a performance by the San people with minor sound manipulation by Fernando Ribeiro. 

The time is April 2017 and the space is the Kalahari Desert in Botswana. The context is that of Tourism with capital T: although this is the depths of Africa, tourists arrive on busses on a weekly basis, and under a very hot sun the San people are introduced to us as a very ancient people, the kind of last pure and nomadic ones around. They show us some tricks about their survival on the desert: how to fetch water, how to start a fire, how to find weeds for different usage and how to hunt animals. In a word: they act as their ancestors always have, or they may even actually reproduce real acts of their contemporary lives, but all the purity seems to vanish with the regularity of the touristic show. This is why when the night falls and you are invited for yet another act, this time with music, you become impressed to hear such pure circular chants that float on circular paths around the fire. This is not just a cover of old songs, you can actually feel the trance of your contemporaries being visited by their ancestors.
