Description:
In this session, Larimo Sorisow, Nenchin Sidisow, July Jebisow and Trudaw Sorisow are seen engaged in the act of plucking green vegetables, cooking and eating it. Nenchin and Larimo cook and serve the vegetables in the traditional Hrusso Aka way. The video was shot in Larimo's kitchen garden and her bamboo kitchen and is being accompanied by Nenchin, July and her son Trudaw. The audio recorded through Rode NTG 2 on Marantz PMD 661 MK2 could not be used as the audio captured was not audible enough because of the distance between the microphone and the participants. As a result, the audio recorded directly on the camera through Rode VideoMicro was used instead. RECORDING CONDITION Audio:Fairly quiet village surroundings; outdoors. Audio recorded directly on Sony PJ 540 camcorder with Rode VideoMicro microphone using SC2 inputs and extracted later using Adobe Premiere Pro software. Recording Specs: Stereo, 48000 Hz, 32 bit float.
Documentation and Description of the Hrusso Aka Language of Arunachal Pradesh DESCRIPTION: This is a collection of Audio, video and textual language resources in Hrusso Aka, a language spoken by about 4000 speakers in the West Kameng district of Arunachal Pradesh, India.
