When Hugh Tracey (1903-1977) made 35,000 field recordings across Sub-Saharan Africa between the 1920s & 1970s, his intention was to reveal the beauty and complexity of the music to a world that saw little value in it. Today, almost 90 years later, Tracey’s bid to preserve the music of Africa for future generations’ lives on. Beating Heart has connected the archive at the International Library of African Music (ILAM) with contemporary producers, making fresh sounds for a modern audience. Building on Tracey’s vision, the income generated will be used to assist people in the areas where the music was originally recorded. The first instalment in the series, 'Beating Heart - Malawi' is out now. LISTEN
This is a new project for us and we are extremely excited to begin working with Beating Heart over the next few months! We intend to bring together a mix of traditional tribal footage from Malawi, infused with contemporary animations.
