Song of the river Catalogue and CD from the temporary exhibition

Harps of Central Africa

Group

The catalogue contains a lot of pictures describing the trip through Central Africa, which is the subject of the exhibition. The exhibition passes through Central Africa from East to West, and goes through Uganda, Gabon, the Republic of Central Africa, North of Congo, Chad and Cameroon.
In this region of Africa, harp is a very popular instrument which appears under different shapes, sizes and fonctions. A multidisciplinary approach (ethnology, art history, linguistic, organology, musicology) brings up numerous questions about harps and their music and suggests some answers.
