Do not expect to hear Hawaiian guitars, ukuleles and the Hula. Imagine, however, a musical odyssey through the South Pacific islands traveling with a rucksack, 200 rolls of tape, 35mm film and stereo tape recorder. Here are some wonderful examples of authentic South Seas music—unbelievably beautiful and yet an endangered species. If you travel from the Cook Islands in an anti-clockwise circle via the Solomon Islands to Tahiti and if you search hard enough this is the kind of music you might have the luck to find.
