VARIOUS JAIPONGAN GROUPS


Here's a bunch of jaipongan groups from around Bandung. Taken these off vcd's that are being sold as a way of promoting these groups, there's usually a contact adress or phone number on the cover or on the screen when you watch these video's. They're dirt cheap, mostly around 30 dollar cents or so and they're usually very bad quality, often they won;t work or video's just stop half way through. They're mostly video's shot at wedding parties and such where these groups perform, field recordings you might say, sometimes they're proper albums like the one from the Jaipong Berlin Group of whom I included 2 songs here....

GEORGE DELERUE, HALIM EL-DABH & OTHERS - SON ET LUMIERE PYRAMIDES ET SPHINX




Sound-track recording from the "Son et Lumiere" which took place in the areas of the Pyramids,Sphinx and Citadel of Salah el Din. It involved a large number of Arab and foreign archeologists collaborating in choosing historical materials and sounds, with music composed by Georges Delerue and Halim el Dabe. Featuring a score for voices and celebrated actors presenting a spectacle of sound and light. This record set documents the project and was produced by The Ministry of Culture and Information in the Arab Republic of Egypt.

This record is in French, apparently there's also an English version and it seems both versions, French and English are quiet rare....

EDDIE LUND AND HIS NATIVE TAHITIANS - TAHITI DANCES



Eddie Lund was the father of modern Tahitian folk music. He was born October 12, 1909 and grew up in Vancouver, Washington State, USA....

In 1936 he made his first visit to the islands of French Tahiti. He spent a month there and immediately fell in love with the place, the people and their music. He returned to his job as a pianist in Portland, Oregon, saved his money and in 1938, moved permanently to Tahiti. He learned to speak French and Tahitian. He began composing songs in Tahitian, incorporating native melodies and drumbeats with his own creative thoughts. He organized a band of Tahitian musicians and starting in the business of making records on the Tahiti Records label, based in Papeete. In the 1950's these records were distributed on a worldwide basis by Criterion Records of Hollywood, California. Eddie Lund passed away in 1973.

And this album is great!!! Very swinging music and I hope I'll be able to find more of Eddie Lund's music. It doesn't say anywhere on the cover when this came out, can't find a date on the net either but I'd say somewhere in the 50's....

She was perhaps best known for her highly distinctive singing style and her 1953 hit recordings of "C'est Si Bon" and the enduring Christmas novelty smash "Santa Baby". Orson Welles once called her the "most exciting woman in the world". She took over the role of Catwoman for the third and final season of the 1960s Batman television series, replacing Julie Newmar, who was unavailable due to other commitments. She also voiced Yzma on Disney's The Emperor's New Groove and its television spinoff, The Emperor's New School, earning two Emmy Awards in the process, the second shortly before her death. She won a third Emmy posthumously in 2010, for The Wonder Pets.
