Two interesting comments from youtube on the adulteration of Baka music:

I appreciate efforts to help the Baka but I am sorry to hear the most ancient, deep, and unique music on the planet used for musically shallow & commercial purposes. What makes this producer think that he is improving or making contemporary this music by putting a pedestrian reggage beat on it? Why would anyone think Baka music needs improving? Why not ask what the Baka themselves might want to do with their music? Were they involved in the mix? This is cultural colonialism...
++++++++
Colonialism is the practice of domination, which involves the subjugation of one people to another.

Here the Baka's music has simply been transposed to other instruments. It sounds like a "pedestrian Reggae beat" only because that is what the original rhythms played by the Baka are like.

Are the Baka musicians not allowed to commercialise their music whereas that's ok for the rest of us? - that's colonialism
