Filet Selektah: Sabrina Joy

Sabrina Joy  удивила широтой своей подборки, хотя мы и знали, что она большой любитель безумных путешествий и заядлый меломан с прекрасным вкусом.


К сожалению, нехорошие блюстители расовой и копирайтерской чистоты выпилили из ютуба несколько африканских и вьетнамских песен из плейлиста Сабрины, так что слушаем ее в несколько урезанном виде.

Сабрина Джой: Это микс необычной и довольно эксцентричной музыки из Тринидада, Анголы, Гвинеи, Конго, Вьетнама, Апонии, Бали… Я родилась на Филиппинах и выросла в Таиланде. Мой отец был своего рода неофициальным этномузыковедом, так что я былa подверженa воздействию различныx стилей музыки с самого раннего возраста. Я предполагаю, что это и сформировало меня. Когда мне было 20+ я работала на лейбле Smithsonian Folkways и это был невероятный опыт. Изучение музыки разных культур это то, что я никогда не перестану делать, потому что это бесконечно увлекательно.


“I was born in the Philippines and also lived in Thailand as a child. My dad was an informal ethnomusicologist, so I was exposed to many different types of music from a very early age. I suppose it was baked into my architecture. When I was in my late 20’s I worked at Smithsonian Folkways, which was an incredible learning experience. Exploring music from different cultures is something I will never stop doing because it’s endlessly fascinating.” Sabrina Joy

The Baka people live in the rain forests of Cameroon, Republic of the Congo, the Central African Republic, and Gabon. Baka music is sung in polyphonic vocal choirs, with several melodies sung simultaneously, and polyrhythmic percussion.

A djembe, jembe, or djembefola is a rope-tuned skin-covered drum played with bare hands, originally from West Africa. This video features women from Guinea playing djembe music.

Retreating to the inland forests of Suriname to escape harsh conditions on slave plantations, small communities were established based on African heritages. This video features the Saramaka, who eventually became one of the largest Maroon (runaway slave) groups of this area.

This is a rare recording of tribes of Pygmies in the remote Ituri rain forest of the Congo. This recording was originally released in 1958.

Typically, in the Baka tradition, only women and girls play water drums. A group of them stand in the water up to their waists and with cupped hands hit the surface of the water. Each of them will play a diverse rhythmic pattern, which mutually forms a more multifaceted sound rhythm.

Kecak is a form of Balinese dance and music drama that was developed in the 1930s. Also known as the Ramayana Monkey Chant, the piece is performed by a circle of at least 150 performers percussively chanting “cak” and moving their hands and arms. It depicts a battle from the Ramayana.

Gamelan is the traditional ensemble music of Java and Bali. It’s made up predominantly of percussive instruments. The most common instruments used are metallophones played by mallets and a set of hand-played drums called kendhang which register the beat.

Ainu music is traditional music of the Ainu people of northern Japan. It carries spiritual resonance in almost all of its forms, and has played an important role in the cultural history of the Ainu people. Almost every type of Ainu song is sacred, and even the musical instruments are said to be filled with souls of spirits.
