I hadn’t really done much video work at this point in my life; I’d only recorded snippets every now and then. Anyway, I came across a young man fiddling with a homemade guitar outside the house of a leprosy patient I’d been interviewing. I asked him if he minded me recording. He happily complied and launched into a song – his voice was a welcome surprise. I heard this once. I didn’t hear him play anything else.
This is that recording. I tend not to travel with much cash, but paid him about $16 – what I told him I’d pay to download an album of his.
