Ian Brennan shares inspiring stories about music he produced and recorded in Africa, where he helped bring forth the voices of voiceless people to the world.
Ian Brennan is a Grammy-winning producer who has produced four Grammy-nominated albums and published four books while all the while teaching violence prevention around the world since 1993.
He has written a fascinating book called “How Music Dies (Or Lives)” that shares his deep understanding of music, culture, and recording music all over the world, but particulaly the continent of Africa. On episode 38, he told us all about his book and field recording music in general. However, since our last interview, Ian has released two more remarkable records and agreed to join us on Recording Studio Rockstars to tell us about the experience, play some examples, and talk about the process of recording them.
The first record is called Tanzania Albinism Collective. The second record Abatwa (The Pygmy): Why Did We Stop Growing Tall?
In true form, Ian Brennan finds voiceless peoples of the world and uses recording and technology to bring their voices loud and clear to us, grabbing the attention of national media and the Grammys along the way.
