AllMusic Review by

Polyphony -- for both voices and panpipes -- is crucial to Solomon Islands music. This recording is from Gaudalcanal and Savo. This re-release of classic 1974 recordings by Hug Zemp contains fine examples of both (including one amazingly like a shape-note sol-fa), with very thorough notes and photos.
