This anthology of the music of New Guinea, recorded in the 1950s and spanning Papua New Guinea, Indonesia’s Papua Province and the Solomon Islands, presents rare glimpses of this rich, eerie music connected to the invisible world, including flutes, horns, bullroarers, drums, and singing.

Cette anthologie de la musique de la Nouvelle-Guinée, enregistrée dans les années 1950 en Papouasie-Nouvelle-Guinée, dans la province de Papouasie en Indonésie et dans les îles Salomon, présente de précieux fragments de ces musiques riches et mystérieuses connectées au monde invisible, avec notamment des flûtes, des trompes, des rhombes, des tambours et du chant.
