Project Description

Here’s one of them

This is what a magazine in Cameroon wrote about the project:

Baka musicians from the far South-East corner of Cameroon, Baka Gbiné, have been recording songs for an innovative education project. They have been commissioned to write and record 12 songs that will help teach Baka children basic French, numbers and letters.

Martin Cradick of GME to help

The recording is being carried out by Martin Cradick of Global Music Exchange. He has been working with this group of musicians and their families since 1992. “It’s great to see the seeds of our work with Baka at Gbiné bear fruit”, he said. “Proper paid work for these musicians from a very deprived part of Cameroon. So often they are exploited for as little money as possible. That’s not much around here. It can be as low as 300f for several hours hard work. It is good to see their exceptional talents recognised. ”
