Sweet Lullaby by Deep Forest
The first album by Deep Forest consisted of two French artists who mixed modern music with an overlay of native Baka people’s spoken word.
With nature video.

Special thanks to Evan, at Being Elle, for sending me a link of this and reminding me of how this was my favorite song on their first album.
Sooo cool that you love Deep Forest too! I wondered if you’d like it. 🙂 Thank you for including the link to Baka people. I apologize for my ignorance – it wasn’t until I followed the link that I learned the term “pygmies” is no longer acceptable or respectable to use. As a matter of fact, before I sent the email to you I even googled the album to make sure my description was accurate! Glad I know now.
We just love that you love music as much as we do!
Thanks so much for the link. I really appreciate the reminder.
Well I didn’t know that “pygmie” was not in use anymore. It has been almost ten years since I was in college and while taking Anthropology coursework it was still in use then, by those in the field of Anthropology.
As someone with an Anthropology major in college I found that I really loved indigenous music. But still and perhaps always I will love Celtic music the most and the best, as a Celt myself, I find that it is the music where my heart is firmly rooted.
I always appreciate and enjoy other survivor bloggers who post about music. It really is very healing, but mostly it is fun. 🙂
Good and healing music to you and in your household.
Deep Forest -Sweet Lullaby is relaxing and invigorating. I’ll be checking the libraries for a cd. Thanks for posting.
Their first cd, the self-titled Deep Forest, is the one to look for. Subsequent albums are interesting, but diverged quite a bit from this style.
Good and healing thoughts to you.
