AllMusic Review by

This consists of traditional and contemporary music from what was, until its independence in 1975, the Ellice Islands. Tuvalu consists of 10,000 people living on nine atoll islands. Dutch researchers Ad and Lucia Linkels document a largely vocal musical culture of remarkable width, including the pre-Christian music remembered by the elderly, church-influenced modern singing and guitar-backed secular songs.
