Pygmy music is a traditional form of music performed by Pygmies, an indigenous group of people living in Central Africa. The music is characterized by its unique vocal style, which features complex polyphonic singing and yodeling. Pygmy music is often accompanied by instruments such as the harp-like mbira, the xylophone-like balafon, and the bow harp. The Pygmées Aka, Baka Pygmies, and Aka Pygmies are among the most well-known groups of Pygmies who perform this music.
