ONLINE ENCORE: Indigenous Music and Instruments of the South Pacific with Jim Berenholtz

PURCHASE TICKETS

*EXCLUSIVE PRE-RECORDED PRESENTATIONS ARE VIEWABLE FOR 24 HOURS BEGINNING AT MIDNIGHT!

Prepare to embark on a Trans-Pacific journey as ethnomusicologist Jim Berenholtz takes you on his musical canoe to tropical islands, large and small. Discover the huge and richly biodiverse island of New Guinea, where massive log drums, giant bamboo flutes and trumpets, hourglass-shaped wooden drums with lizard skin heads, and bamboo panpipes play. Travel to other parts of Melanesia like Vanuatu and the Solomon Islands, where Jim will share ankle rattles made from seed pods and elaborate headdresses used in ceremonial dances. Launch into the Polynesian triangle, from Aotearoa (New Zealand) with a tiny percussion instrument made from macadamia nuts, to Tahiti and the Marquesas Islands with their log drums and wooden trumpets. Heading further east to Rapa Nui (Easter Island), see unique ritual artifacts from this distinctive island culture before heading north to the Hawaiian Islands, to see more innovative uses of bamboo for making music, and to hear sacred chants and conch shell trumpets.
