7/17/2014 African Rhythms

The two tracks we played by Rwandan Inanga virtuoso Sophie Nzayisenga are from a 21-song album recorded by Vanderbilt University musicologist Gregory Barz, and posted to the Global Music Archive site for free downloading. In addition to the music, the site offers extensive liner notes and a 38-minute video documentary about Sophie’s life and music. The Rwanda full-length fiction film featuring Sophie’s music is “Matière Grise,” or “Gray Matter.” Directed by emerging filmmaker Kivu Ruhorahoza, it won two awards at the 2011 Tribeca Festival (Best Actor & Best new director). Careful internet searching will reveal several options for purchasing or streaming the film, depending on what subtitles and formats you prefer.
