Music of Indonesia 10 Music of Biak, Irian Jaya CD

  • $1599


Music for celebrations and church services on Biak, an island off the northwest coast of New Guinea. Wor songs usually sung by choruses in a seemingly drastic, free-for-all style were central to traditional Biak society. Two other genres have developed more recently: church songs, sung here by women's choirs in both the formal manner and in a relaxed, hand-clapping, party mood; and yospan, string-band music for dance parties. Excellent notes. 73 minutes.
