MRG’s April 2015 Minority Voices Podcast features a report back from the jungles of Thailand, where indigenous communities are being displaced in the name of conservation, and folk music from the war-torn Nuba Mountains in Sudan.
Thanks to Atanas Kutsev for providing the field recording of Paethai Paera playing the dennaku in Phurakam village, Thailand, March 2015.
