Lost & Found Sound

Lost And Found Sound

Our Friday feature this week comes from a tip sent by Bonny Sands, a linguist in Flagstaff, Arizona. She told us a colleague of hers, Tony Trail from South Africa, took some old wax cylinders and documented a lot of the now extinct languages of South Africa. Trail has now put out a CD copy of the original, which was recorded in 1936. We hear excerpts.
