If you enjoyed the late Cameroonian writer and composer Francis Bebey’s album Psychedelic Sanza 1982-1984 in our record collection, here’s a rare on-camera interview with him recorded at Real World Studios in 1995, just six years before he passed away.
This video should especially delight lovers of Bebey’s biggest song, “The Coffee Cola Song,” many of whom have wondered what the fun wind instrument featured throughout looks like. Here Bebey demonstrates the technique for the wondrous one-note bamboo flute. Fun fact: Bebey’s son, Patrick, plays the one-note flute on “The Coffee Cola Song.”
