EDDIE LUND AND HIS NATIVE TAHITIANS - TAHITI DANCES



Well, last post of 2017, 1205 posts, that has to be some kind of record....

Happy new year ya'll!

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.

STEVEDORE STEVE - I'VE LIVED



For many, many years of his life Canadian Stevedore Steve was doing the Jack Kerouac, traveling all over Canada, the United States and Mexico, riding box-cars, hitch-hiking or just walking, doing odd jobs along the way. When he died, at age 80 he donated his body to science.... The songs on this album explain, he writes, how he lived.... At times you would swear you're listening to Johnny Cash, but not when you hear the one small hit he had way back with the song Lester The Lobster.....

HETTY KOES EDANG - RINDU



I like this one, another album from Hetty Koes Edang and this is the one I like the most from her, to be honest, most of her stuff is way to commercial and soft pop for me but a lot of the songs on this album are pretty good, and the music is all by Ian Antono who is the guitar player from legendary rock band God Bless....
