Horatio Clare tells the story of the complex and unconventional anthropologist Colin Turnbull. Arguably the most influential field recordings of all time were made in 1954 by a British anthropologist called Colin Turnbull. These recordings of the finely wrought music of Mbuti pygmies, in the Ituri forest of what was then the Belgian Congo, inspired legions of ethnomusicologists and have gone on to be used as influence and source material for a raft of artists, including Madonna, John Coltrane, Brian Eno and Herbie Hancock.
