Survival International & Baka Beyond

ietaSurvival International is an organization that has long helped tribal people defend their lives, land and determine their own futures. Together with a group of Baka musicians from the Cameroonian rainforest they are hoping to spread the word internationally about the forest dwellers who are being overlooked and persecuted by local and global organizations. The Baka's music is apart of everyday life where the villagers are often woken by women singing "Yelli" to bring animals from the forest for successful hunting. When they bathe in the river there seems to be music too. The opportunity to witness Baka Beyond during their upcoming tour in April-May is one that shouldn't be missed. Come for their intricate sounds, learn of the people, their situation and lend your hand in their struggle.

As of right now all tour dates are solely in the UK, beginning April 30 in Westonbirt. For a full tour listing click here.
