dc.description Contains three tracks digitized from two cassette tapes. These recordings are most likely from the Hagahai tribe in the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea, but this is not confirmed. No names of performers or recorders are provided. KMF-020-1 is Side A of a cassette tape labeled "Bushfire - Traditional aboriginal music". KMF-020-2 is from Side B of the same tape. The label on the tape says: Niba & Gabaun x3; Woijehe, Niba, & Gabaun x5; Horowai sing-sing, Niba, Gabaun Bebena, Unabai, Wabulubu; Niba, Gabaun x3; Hagahai sing-sing, (Gwale)-Wabulubu; Niba, Gabaun, Niba, Gabaun x4; Meri sing-sing, Chiboria x3, Nanguman, Chibo x2, Maora x4; Tandem Gwale, Yenaji, Gabaun, Togi vs. Niba, Unaba, Woijehe. File KMF-020-3 is from a second tape with a label that says: Pina-we @ Sabu's pig kill; Gabaun & Wabulubu do Horowai songs. Altogether, the files are all music with multiple singers, possibly recorded over several sessions. Good-quality recording in general but with some scattered distortion, possibly because the tapes may have been used repeatedly for recording.
