NEW VIDEO: Kalahari Journey I

Video compilation from our first visit to the Kalahari in November 2016. The journey took us to villages: //Xa /oba, Nhoma & Nama Pan where we celebrated and exchanged music with the beautiful people we met. We are very grateful to the Goethe Institute in Windhoek for making this trip possible. This is part of a music research project in collaboration with the Museums Association of Namibia & Unesco.
