ClassicsOnline Home » POLYNESIA Spirit of Polynesia - Traditional Chants, Drum Dances and Other Music from Rapa Iti, Fiji, Hawaii … (recorded by David Fanshawe, 1978-1989)
A Wonderful, Eccentric Collection
Fanshawe's collection of traditional Polynesian chants is a delight. Many of these musicians are not professional- they simply play music in their free time. Fanshawe's skill in finding these people, recording them, and arranging them is unique. The size of the album makes it feel like Fanshawe truly spanned Polynesia and took a sweeping record of its collective spirit. Approximately half of the tracks are in a chanting form that achieves glorious harmonies. Others look at sounds unknown to the average Western listener. I'm no expert in world music, but this collection of Polynesia's music could be a good addition to yours.more....
