Xylophones, live music and lack thereof in Ghana

A documentary about Ghana’s popular music scene and the struggle between indigenous identity and mainstream music culture. The documentary is framed by a search for “the spiderweb”– or the thin, vibrating fibers that African musicians once attached to their mbiras and xylophones to, allegedly, create a buzzing sound that would invoke their ancestors. Via the Eavesdrop.earth blog.
