The Kaluli People
According to Mickey Hart;
Steven Feld sits in a tree recording things that make sounds in the night. He never gets to see what they are. The Kaluli believe the forest is a tuning fork, and they're just one of the voices of the forest. It's not unusual to see one of the Kaluli playing a duet with a waterfall or a bird. What you are listening to is endangered music, music on the brink of extinction.There is some discussion about the making of this album in the book; Music Grooves : Essays and Dialogues, Charles Keil, Steven Feld, 1994.
Bamboo Jew's Harp was included on the sampler CD;
