    The island of Rapa Iti is home to people of Polynesian descent. Though their church music has been influenced by Christian hymns, there is an ancient polyphonic music sung in quarter-tones kept very much alive by the whole population. That is the music chosen for this recording. It is sung by the island's voice choir.

    The Tahitian Islands include Oparo, also known as Rapa, where some inhabitants dwell; of the villagers comprise this choir. The unusual sonorities of all those singers, pure intonation not so much being the prerequisite as is the spirit, reflects the diversity of their distinct Polynesian culture.6/

    The Tahitian Choir is a choral group from the island known as Rapa Iti, one of the Bass Islands in the South Pacific, approximately 1, miles southeast of.

    The choir is made up of men and women. Their music portrays their traditional Tahitian life and dialect and has been recorded on two albums and one re-release, recordings produced by Pascal Nabet Meyer. This caused a sensation when released in on Triloka. Its reappearance is welcomed, although not the sappy synthesizer accompaniment on the bonus track that opens the new disc. .

    It's a fine example of Polynesian singing, with all its rich polyphony and more. What distinguishes this music is that Rapa Iti is extremely isolated. Consequently, the music has largely escaped much of the influence of the 20th century. The CD includes some hymns that are obviously influenced by missionary tradition, as well as older forms of music/5(6).

    Mar 08,  · Here we get the multi-layered quarter-tone singing of the Tahitian Choir, which, at members, counted one-third of the island of Rapa as members. Now reissued with one new song, these traditionals, which were recorded in , are so old that they can't even be translated because the island's ancient language is largely forgotten/5(6).
