Music Planet - Congo

For this major series to accompany BBC One's 'Human Planet', Andy Kershaw and Lucy Duran go in search of music from some of the world's remotest locations...

This week, Lucy presents a profile of the Mbendjele people of northern Congo, a pygmy hunter-gatherer group whose music echoes the sound of the forest that feeds them.

Producers Roger Short and James Parkin.
