A gorgeous album of traditional music of Eastern Polynesia from David Fanshawe’s monumental Pacific Collection, recorded over ten years (1978-88). The album focuses on the rich variety of authentic himene (hymns) indigenous to Tahiti, the Cook Islands, the Society Islands and others. Extensive information about the music, transcriptions and translations of the lyrics, richly illustrated with colour photos.

Total playing time: 69:24 min.

Pure Joy
Wednesday, 20 November 2019  | 

When I introduced my high-school World Music class to the vocal music of the South Pacific, it instantly became their favorite music. This is the sound of pure joy! The harmonies will feel familiar, but the energy and enthusiasm with which these groups sing is unlike anything else. This CD is an accessible introduction to the music of Oceania--you WILL find yourself smiling throughout this entire recording!
