When Hugh Tracey (1903-1977) made 35,000 field recordings across Sub-Saharan Africa between the 1920s & 1970s, his intention was to reveal the beauty and complexity of the music to a world that saw little value in it.
Today, almost 90 years later, Tracey’s bid to preserve the music of Africa for future generations’ lives on. Beating Heart has connected the archive at the International Library of African Music (ILAM) with contemporary producers, making fresh sounds for a modern audience.
Building on Tracey’s vision, the income generated will be used to assist people in the areas where the music was originally recorded.
