Sweet lullaby - Deep Forest

Deep Forest is a musical group consisting of two French musicians, Michel Sanchez and Eric Mouquet. Michel Sanchez came up with the idea of mixing Baka Pygmy chants with modern music after hearing on-site recordings of these tribes. Along with Eric Mouquet they created the project Deep Forest.

Their first self-titled album (nominated for a Grammy) was released in 1992, with 'Sweet lullaby' being the hit single that would put Deep Forest on the musical map. It peaked at number 10 in the UK singles chart. The song is adapted from a traditional song from the Solomon Islands.
