Children of Shouab, Socotra - 2013​-​03​-​20 - Shouab - Children recite Quranic verses

from Socotra Soundscapes: Field Recordings from the Archipelago (BENEFIT RELEASE) by Socotra Soundscapes



The children of the fishing village of Shouab (Shu'ab), found on Socotra's far western coast, are an enthusiastic bunch. No sooner had our translator/guide Ismael pulled up to buy a loaf of bread from a local baker than they had climbed all over our truck to check us out (along with our gear). The only way I could contain them was to point my microphone out the window, the results of which are excerpted here.
