Summary

In December 1995, a group of Banda-Linda horn players from the Central African Republic came to Paris at the Maison des Cultures du Monde. Ethnomusicologist Simha Arom took the opportunity to decipher the musical system they use. Gradually, with the help of demonstrations by the musicians, he uncovers the structure of these compositions, which are created from a basic model with an elaboration of subtle variations.
