Pass It On

Adding some depth to music lessons with some excellence in the genre of world music are the musicians who make up Baka Beyond, which has released a new album "After the Tempest". The band has been around for a while - their album "Spirit of the Forest" was released 21 years ago and helped to define the genre of world music. The group works with the Baka Forest People of Cameroon, who originally inspired their sound. The key players, Martin Kradick and Su Hart spend several months in the country and set up the charity Global Music Exchange to facilitate this work - in between tours. After their recent tour last year, the band was invited to the Penpont estate in Wales to provide live music for a version of William Shakespeare's "The Tempest", a first for them. Two tracks on the new album "Ariel's Song" and "Full Fathom Five" are from this production.
