Tasaday

1981
Monza, Brianza, Italy

A major discovery? An elaborate hoax? Is the hoax claim the real hoax?
Tasaday did not make worldwide headlines in 1982 when the not tiny group emerged from some humid villages in hills of Brianza, carrying metal, electric and electronic musical instruments, such as tubes, coils, amputed bass and chopper vox, and professing no knowledge. The people were talking about the sensation of him who belongs to the dark and awakes at the day light, perceiving that nothing changes. In 1984, someone entered into the radio station where the Tasaday were playing their music, reading hermetic texts and playing their own parts, and wrote on the wall the sentence “Tasaday fucking poseur”, claiming that the Tasaday story was a fraud.
The wall writer claimed that the people had been persuaded to act as “the inexpressible thing” as an elaborate hoax. One journalist did not support those accusations and later, after a Tasaday live performance, on a major circulation magazine, he described the Tasaday as “the italian new Sex Pistols of the ’80″, saying that the Tasaday are authentic and the claim of a hoax was the real hoax.
Nowadays the question is still unanswered.
