In September and October of 2009 Antony Milton spent 3 weeks working as a volunteer for the San Miguel del Bala community in the Bolivian jungle. His project for this period was to record a work representing the sound environment of this location, the sounds of the jungle and of the local village and its musicians.
This experience was a real adventure including a 3 day journey in dugout canoe up into the deep jungle of the Madidi National Park in order to record Howler Monkeys and other more exotic animals.
The final album is a filmic 35 minute suite of sounds and music.
