The Verschueren collection 1962
Anthology of music from West Papua 2
RMP 4018, 2008
The once famous and notorious Marind Anim culture with its secret initiations, colourfull Dema spirit processions and ritualized head hunting had already disappeared in the 1930's due to colonisation and
missionary activities. In 1962 Father Jan Verschueren tried to record as much as still possible of the music accompanying the Dema processions and rituals which once formed the highlights of traditional Marind Anim culture.
Having lived there since 1931 and speaking the language fluently, the Marind Anim trusted him and allowed him to record these secret songs.Additionally there is a wax cylinder recording Verschueren made in 1933. The text of the accompanying 20 page booklet is based on the notebooks, correspondence and publications of Jan Verschueren and illustr ated with rare historical pictures.
If you are looking for something really creative and music as you never heard before this CD is what you have been longing for. Tribal and Ethnic music in its purest form.
