Batwa pygmies are a tribe of hunter-gatherers who lived in its caves and trees for more than 4,000 years (in today's Uganda). They're dramatically vulnerable and marginalized now after decades of deforestation (or creation of protected areas/national parks), to say nothing of evangelical sects, AIDS and alcoholism.
Abatwa (The Pygmy), Why Did We Stop Growing Tall? (2017) on #Glitterbeat is a great (and despairing) selection of modern pygmy songs & a rather controversial question too.
Traditional explanations attribute pygmies' small stature to minimizing caloric requirements and walking in dense forests. Modern research believes that human pygmies around the world are smaller than average because they tend to live very short lives, in some communities as little as 18 years (!). The idea being that pygmies have to stop growing earlier, because when you start reproducing—at least for women—all the energy you would put in growth is put into reproduction. Like some kind of natural cornelian dilemma: you either grow or multiply... #pygmy #tribe #pygmies #Batwa #Abatwa #recordoftheday #LP #compilation #nowplaying #IanBrennan #fieldrecording #traditional #traditionalmusic #forest #Uganda #worldmusic #unlistenable #KogoCzego
