Audiobook "tell Africa": Antelope Moon

Love poetry to the sounds of West Africa


On this CD famous speakers read love poems from countries south of the Sahara to the sounds of West African music. German Audio Book Award 2008.


The content

For the first time musicians from West Africa and famous speakers from the audiobook edition "Afrika erzählt" came together with West African musicians in a studio to record poems from countries South of the Sahara. With pure joy they created magic moments of sensuality and melancholy. The studio work became a session, it was as if the ancient spirits of the griots and the today's artists would celebrate a feast for the senses.


The speakers and musicians

The love poems are read by Eva mattes, Roman Knižka, Nina Petri, Jacques Breuer, Anna Thalbach, Udo Samel, Patrick O. Beck, Hans Peter Hallwachs and Manfred Zapatka.

Their readings are accompanied by the sounds of West Africa with Mamadou Diabate from Burkina Faso (Balafon) and Mamadou Diabate from Mali (Kora).
