This record presents some of the musical forms of two Melanesian communities, the Fataleka and the Baegu, which inhabit the northern part of the island of Malaita, the most densely populated island of the British Solomon Islands Protectorate.
The recordings heard on the present record were made during a musicological field trip under the auspices of the "Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique", France. The recordings of Fataleka music were made in Kwaifalu in February, 1970, with the collaboration of the anthropologist Remo Guidieri, whom I wish to thank also for his help in regard to the documentation on the music of the Fataleka. The recordings of the Baegu music were made in Fulunu in September, 1969, in which connection my thanks are due in particular to Mr. Severio Talifulu, headman of the Baegu sub-district. The master tape of this record was prepared in the Department of Ethnomusicology of the Musée de l'Homme, Paris...(NM/NM)
