SOUNDSCAPES – Sounds of the Bush
Without sound…there would be no music, no legend, and no voice to stir the soul, evoke the memory, or transport the spirit!
The ability to hear and interpret what one hears is second nature to people such as the San or Bushmen of the Kalahari, the pygmy’s in the Congo forests or people in the South American forests. Our sense of hearing however has taken a back seat as we rely more and more on our sense of sight to discover and interpret our world.
