Tahiti – The Gauguin Years: Songs and Dances [coll] – [Nonesuch Records]

Before westerners brought their diseases to the island, Tahiti’s main problem was overcrowding. An extremely rigid caste system kept everybody in place. Supernatural tabus hovered overhead. No mistakes were made, existence was predetermined. Genealogies, war stories, talisman chant, percussion, and dance reinforce the social structure and warded off bad vibes. Some hula and beautiful and then some very primal.
