Play


A couple recordings I made with a mini-disc recorder in Independent Samoa in 2002 0r 2003.  Every Samoan can sing, if you started to sing a song on a public bus everyone would join you.  The houses have thatched roofs and walls of woven leaves that are folded up during the daytime so the breeze sweeps through.   Here are some pics: the father and son are from the Falonga Bay village in Upolo, where I recorded the outstanding youth chours.
