Imagine travelling up the Congo River, deep into the Heart of Negroland on a wooden steamboat.  Africa is a place where cannibalism and human sacrifices are still practiced in this very day.  As you drift along, sometimes you pass a kraal where Negroes beat drums and do their thing.  The farther into the Dark Continent you drift, birds, wild animals and clouds of insects buzz and hum creating a background of sound which sometimes never lets up.  In an hour of programmatic music you can easily imagine where Joseph Conrad drew his inspiration.
