I got back from Burkina Faso 2 weeks ago where I had the chance to be and record ambiances for 1 month and a half. So here are some photos and a sound glimpse from the City Side of Burkina Faso. There are 3 cities represented here: Ouagadougou (capital) where people speak in Mooré (language of the Mossi ethnic group) and Bobo Dioulasso (second biggest city un Burkina) and Banfora. In the two last towns people speak Dioula (same name for the ethnic group). Because of the colonization the official language is french. And people speak french everywhere in Burkina especially when they are traveling in they’re own country because of the different traditional language related to the presence of a lot of different ethnic group. Enjoy and excuse my English!A special page is coming with a lot more of sounds I recorded there with nature sounds, villages, cities and even a sand wind!
Here is a memory from my third travel in Africa. The scene takes places in a humble area of Bamako (Mali) named Boulkasoum Bougou (see the picture). A lot of young children were playing when I arrived with my equipment. They were surprised and excited when i put my headphone on the ears of one of them. They began to scream and play around the mics so I decided to take advantage of it. They are speaking in Bambara. Recorded with two MBHO cardio mics in a H4n. Enjoy and leave comments!
