FELD, STEVEN: The Time of Bells Vol 3
The third in the series moves into the more musical use of bells, specifically in Accra, Ghana, in the por por music invented by timber truck drivers and played still by members of the Accra minibus drivers union -hence the frequent appearance of (bulb) car horns. Many of the pieces here also include mbira, zither, one-string lute, saxophone, double reed instruments and all manner of other percussion. This is more of an ethno-musicological than a soundscape collection, but we include it since it is part of a series.
