Summary Twenty-five years ago, ethnomusicologist Louis Sarno traveled from New Jersey to the forests of Central Africa to record the music of the Bayaka Pygmies. He fell in love with the people, their music, their lifestyle-and a local girl. Despite his failing health and the harsh realities of life in the village, he follows the Bayaka into the heart of the forest. A true story of strength and bravery, uniquely capturing the spirit of a people with music, humor, and love.
