Click to enlargeTahiti - The Gauguin Years

Before the modern renaissance of Tahitian culture, music, dance, and drumming, there were traditions that were passed down in the form of chanting, singing, dancing and oral storytelling. This collection captures some of those ancient traditions reminiscent of when Gauguin lived in the islands. It is an authentic and candid record of the ancient world of the Society Islands.
