Thrilling Slit-log Drums and Harmonies March 24 2012
By Dr. Debra Jan Bibel - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Fiji, a large island group north of New Zealand and southwest of the Samoas, is part of Melanesia. Once a part of the British Empire on the trade route, its music has had several influences, including Indian and Chinese, and European, such as the introduction of the ukelele (an adaptation of a Portuguese instrument) and guitar. The musical major influence is Polynesian, especially the rich multipart harmonies, which itself came from early Missionaries. This recording, however, features the thrilling sound of slit log drums, lali, and bamboo stamping tubes, derua, which augment clave-like sticks and the cupped-hand clapping of singers. The 23-tracks of the 59-minute album cover a variety of meke, dance/song/instrumental combinations: the exciting war dance, spear dance, gentle standing and sitting pieces telling folk tales, and an apparent religious hymn. Two ensembles are heard. The sound quality is satisfactory, but the microphone seems many yards away. The listener seems to be at the back of the village. Repeated listening will discern the variation in musical form, but it is the drumming that I most enjoy.
