UNESCO's "Victory in Nubia" documentary (1982)
« on: June 09, 2020, 06:28:01 AM »
hi friends !

lately i've been trying to identify some tracks featuring in this great UNESCO documentary:

"VICTORY IN NUBIA" (1982)

https://digital.archives.unesco.org/fr/collection/films-and-videos-2/detail/d59850ad-e3d6-e3d5-dcda-022f914ecd71/media/428cef49-57bc-4002-25b5-68f76c3e6f81?mode=detail&view=horizontal&rows=1&page=9&sort=random%7B1591679529105%7D%20asc

please have a listen at the following timings:

- 04:44 (reminds me of gail laughton's harp of the ancient times...)
- 07:28
- 09:38
- 22:44 (very weird contemporary drone stuff i like)

and thanks a lot for your kind help and careful ears !
best wishes from lausanne, switzerland.

sincerely,

frederic

Interesting, but nothing I immediately recognize unfortunately. You'd almost expect UNESCO to use original regional music though, no? Heh.

the difference of genres makes me think of library for the snippets i selected.
it alternates between ethno, new age, contemporary and even some jazzy passages...
