A “WORK SONG" by Matti Larsson & Nihal Ragab. 2010.
This short Movie is an attempt to study sound & its socio-ecological implications, within a comparative framework of "work songs" from the States, Sweden & Egypt, including a specific part on “street calls”.
Independently designed by Matti Larsson and Nihal Ragab, the project was carried out as part of the Lund University Master's Programme in Human Ecology "Culture, Power & Sustainability" (as a final examination project for the course "Lifestyle, Consumption and Identity"). With kind assistance from music archivist Patrik Sandgren, the film is to a great part based upon archive material from "The Scania Music Collection".
