Steve from Bilocation, who records amazing surround sound and binaural albums, writes after his trip to Africa:
"I recorded lots of good stuff in Mozambique, but the best recording was of some fishermen that sang for me on the beach. On the way home we stopped over on Likoma Island, where there's a famous witchdoctor. He's generally regarded as a bad sort, but I wanted to ask him about shamanic flying (which he's alleged to do). After we spent an hour waiting outside his house barefoot (on his orders) and being eaten alive by ants, we had to pass a special stick through a wooden hole, to a little girl who sat on the other side. The witchdoctor then decided he wouldn't see us, and told someone to tell us he was out. On the long walk back, my DAT mysteriously went into rewind, then record, and erased my best recording. This has never happened to me before, and I won't be messing about with witchdoctors again..."
