CD Reviews

Tongan ethnocmusicolgy
(4 out of 5 stars)

""Malie 'Aupito" in Tongan means ultimate top rated entertainment and performance,music or dance.The variety of Tongan music represented in this CD is good and atleast they are in recorded form, better than nothing.There have been other groups and artists doing same or better quality work, but they have not been recorded.This CD collection belong in ethnomusicology. The strains and sounds are basically Tongan
originals, the words and literature relate aspects of Tongan life and feelings. Congratulations to the producers and artists."

"This CD was very inspiring. It made me feel as if I were in the islands once again. I listen to it again and again. The Tongans are a beautiful people with a beautiful musical history. This CD perfectly portrays their rich heritage."
An Outstanding Survey of Tongan Dance Music

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Recorded at important Tongan celebrations and competitions in 1982, 1986, and 1990, Malie! is another valuable record of authentic Pacific sounds brought to us by Dutch ethnomusicologists Ad and Lucia Linkels."
