Aborigines Of Taiwan - Anthology Of The Vocal Art

This anthology spans the vocal art of Taiwan indigenous peoples in 2 CDs, 75 tracks –126 minutes of music– and 9 ethnic groups: the Amis, Atayal, Bunun, Paiwan, Puyuma, Rukai,Truku, Tsou and Yami. This living and varied selection presents polyphonic songs, children’s choirs, solo voices; it encompasses young and older people, field and studio recordings and ranges from the purely traditional to the revisited heritage. It makes up an ensemble of sounds and vocal techniques that can bring to mind Polynesian, Corsican, Bulgarian, Arab-Andalusian or American Indian vocal music… These ancient indigenous traditions enriched with numerous influences are undoubtedly one of the specific cultural ferments of Taiwan’s identity.
