Field Recordings in Labora

In the last two weeks, the study on music and conflict transformation I’m conducting with Music for Peace has really come together. We brought a research assistant on board, collected hours of existing conflict-related music, and went to Labora to conduct field recordings.

Here are a few snapshots of our time there.

In other news, the first batch of conflict-related songs will be translated by the weekend, and next Saturday we’re traveling to Anaka to conduct more field recordings. Stay tuned!
