HAWAIIAN DRUM DANCE CHANTS: Sounds of Power in Time
Compiled and annotated by Elizabeth Tatar. Made between 1923 and 1989, these recordings feature solo chants or chanting accompanied by dancers, drum, and percussion. Chants for prayer, chiefs, and documenting history and genealogy are rich traditions still maintained by a handful of Pahu masters.
