This is a clip from the documentary 'Spirits of Defiance' which has really stuck in my mind. It's not about music, but about culture; and to be more precise about perception. The director/producer has brilliantly succeeded in portraying the point of view of the Mangbetu, who used to be cannibals.
This clip is about sorcery, a subject familiar to anyone who has ever wandered off the tourist path in Africa. And it offers a refreshing look on western religion.
PS: it's from a video recorded on Betamax and later copied to VHS, - so please excuse the quality...
