The Photographs Of Charles Duvelle: Disques Ocora And Collection Prophet
by Charles Duvelle & Hisham Mayet
(Sublime Frequencies)

Disques Ocora was a French label dedicated to folkloric culture from around the world. Started in the late '50s by musicologist Charles Duvelle, Ocora has a massive legacy for pioneering field recordings and photography. Sadly, M. Duvelle passed last week in Paris. May he rest in peace.
