Iles Trobriand. Papua New Guinea

Another great album from the Prophet (Charles Duvelle) collection, recorded in 1974. Tonally, some of the music is very atypical from the rest of the music I have heard from New Guinea, particularly the singing, though the Trobriand Islands are seperated by quite a distance so it makes sense. Some of the singing reminds me of singing from Bulgaria oddly enough. Booklet included.
Also, here is a (very good) film from the late 70's made about the music of the Trobriands, Kama Wosi: Music in the Trobriand Islands.
