Music from South New Guinea

Music from South New Guinea presents the music of tribes settled between the Fly River and the West Arian. Included are songs and dances such as the badara, a traditional dance performed at social events and holidays that is characterized by an “elastic syncopation…created by the drum being slightly faster than the metre of the song….” Among native instruments featured are the burari (flute), the dárombi (similar to a jew’s harp), tátaro (bundled panpipe), and búrubur (hour-glass-shaped drum). Liner notes provide an overview of the history and music of South New Guinea, track notes, pictures, and musical transcriptions.
