Okay - Amazon's sense of geography has me baffled. Under the category of "Various Artists - International - Africa" one finds this album from New Guinea ... last time I looked at a map Africa didn't extend to South Sea Islands or, if you prefer, Southeast Asia. But once you get past the geography, this 2nd volume of Sacred Flute Music From New Guinea is fascinating. The music is played on two large, transverse, bamboo flutes with percussion. The coordination between the flutes is especially interesting as they frequently alternate rather than play in harmony. The notes accompanying the cd are excellent - detailing the instruments and the cultural context of playing them. My first reaction to the cd was mild boredom as there is comparatively little variation in tempo or pitch ... but my appreciation quickly grew to enjoying the quiet, "natural" and expressive sounds of the instruments.
