Synopsis

Album Description
These 1993 and 1994 recordings present the virtually unknown choral singing of Ngada and Manggarai of the island of Flores, an island east of Bali. The sounds, performed mainly at funerals and agricultural rituals, range from highly dissonant harmony to some rare instances of Indonesian counterpoint. Extensive notes and map. 73 minutes. "The 30 tracks on this CD and the 77-page booklet that accompanies it are as educational as they are enjoyable."-Rhythm Music
