THE COLUMBIA WORLD LIBRARY OF FOLK AND PRIMITIVE MUSIC - INDONESIA





Here's one of the records from the World Library of Folk and Primitive Music series made by the great field-recorder and folklorist Alan Lomax, great recordings from Papua, The Moluccas, Kalimantan, Bali and Java.... Edited by Dr. Japp Kunst, Indische Museum, Amsterdam. Columbia records issued 18 volumes between 1955 and 1964 (more than 40 volumes were planned in the beginning) and I saw this record go for 249 dollars on Amazon,com.... Great record!

GET IT HERE



enjoy!

  2. Thanx. Henk, I wanted to tell you that yesterday, we was the film "Don't Think I've Forgotten". What a great document of a precious time of music in this struggling world. I thought about YOU during the viewing. Thanx for all you do here on the blog, man.

    They have been working on it for a dozen years or more... It's really a great documentary.
