Recorded by Ragnar Johnson and Jessica Mayer in 1976. From the Papua New Guinea north coast, the music is played on large-bore bamboo flutes that are side blown and almost 6 feet long. The flutes are always played in pairs (male and female). The flutists play continuous notes, alternating tones, back and forth almost like a jazz blowing session from the 1940s. The music is used for male initiation ceremonies and is sacred, intense, and spiritual.
