Today I hold the first copy of a DVD with video clips of Baskeet music in my hand. When I was in the field in December 2010 and January 2011 I made videos of some musical performances, especially of songs played on the lyre. This week my colleague Arghyro Paouri and I edited these videos, added some introductory information on the Baskeet people, the recorded songs and the recorded musicians. The DVD contains 18 video clips of seven musicians: Pettimaasa Bulk’a, Messele Lipaato & Allayo Lanc’o, Tal’ane Abusho & Mahane Dohanbaabo, and Biits’o Its’into & Worada Geebiro.
Here is the jacket of the DVD:
The photo on the jacket shows Tal’ane Abusho (left) and Mahane Dohanbaabo (right) performing a wedding song.
I hope to upload the introduction and an example video clip very soon! I am already looking forwarding to distributing this DVD in Baskeet during my next field. I hope that the DVD will be played over and over in the cafés in Laska!
