Songs Of The Volcano

Papua New Guinea Stringbands With Bob Brozman

TUGDD1040

World renowned guitarist Bob Brozman travelled to Papua New Guinea - one of the last places on the planet to have guitars arrive from afar - to capture a sound largely untainted by outside influences a raw, unique sound developed in isolation. The energetic and distinctive blend of voice and instrument performed by the Rabaul community's local stringbands reflects their unfailing optimism in the face of adversity, be it war or the volcanic eruptions that have destroyed the town twice in one century, making this album truly 'Songs Of The Volcano'.In addition to this extraordinary album, this package features a full length, behind the scenes DVD documentary of the making of the album.
