Italian ethnomusicologist Luis Devin has created a website about pygmies, the hunter-gatherer peoples of Central African rainforests. A section on the etymology of "pygmy" can be found on the homepage, and it's a good place to start for the uninitiated. Visitors will definitely enjoy any of the links to the pygmy groups, the Baka, Bakola-Bagyeli, Bedzan, Bakoya, and Aka, as the photos and text are accompanied by soundscapes. For instance, in the Baka Pygmies section, under Food Preparation, visitors will hear the sound of pangolin (a scaled mammal that looks like a cross between an artichoke and a hedgehog) crackling on a fire, as well as sounds of a Baka camp and the rainforest. The result, along with the horizontal scrolling required to view the whole page, is a refreshing web experience. Visitors interested in the ethnography process can check out the Fieldwork - Audio-Photo Diary, for many pictures of and by Luis Devin that show the range of his work.
