I spent much of last evening watching/listening to the videos for the Listening to World Music class; this week it's pygmy music. I figure it'll be Baka Beyond, and such-like. They've already mentioned Herbie Hancock's Watermelon Man, and how it came from a style of the pygmies, and then a Madonna song whose name I've already forgotten that she admits was stimulated by Hancock's work. Cross-pollination.
