Polynesian Dances of Bellona (Mungiki) - Solomon Islands

Here is the disc that got me all a-twitter about the Polyphonies disc posted last week. It is no coincidence that both recordings were made by the Hugo Zemp in 1974, though additional credit is given to Jane Mink Rossen. The recordings are definitely more raw, but full of life. Of course, these being recordings of ritual dance, we lose the visual practice that these sounds were meant to accompany. This is rare music, the tiniest fragment of what we hear.



Credits: Produced by Jane Mink Rossen , Recorded by Jane Mink Rossen , Recorded by Hugo Zemp
