A baobad in the bush

Night and day under and near a baobab in the south african bush, Limpopo state, Mmabolela reserve.

1 Night in the open land
Mmabolela reserve, around 1AM. The mics are inside a small group of bushes, in the open land behind the baobab.

1 Dawn at the water hole
A water hole lies at a hundred meters from the baobab. It's 5AM and a small group of deers comes to vent their thirst. As the sun is appearing above the horizon, swarm of birds are flying by. Some come to the water, while cicadas wake up. I grab the mics at 7AM, the sun is already high and the temperature is increasing.

2 The baobab
A typical hot and sunny november afternoon under the baobab of Tuli. Groups of birds are playing around the mics, and a probable coqui francolin comes to feed just in front of them. The cicadas chorus resonates and turns all around, before a solitary bird takes over.

This recordings have been made during the first Sonic Mmabolela, a residency/workshop organized by Francisco Lopez and James Webb. Many thanks to them.
