AllMusic Review by

This re-release of 1970s recordings by the then New Hebrides Oral Tradition Project is the only available CD of a pivotal area for Micronesian culture. Kastom is the local word for traditional practice in general, and these recordings document a wide range of traditional song and sung dance music, both ritual and secular, along with a percussion demonstration. The sound quality and notes are fine.
