Music of the Maori

Product Description
Māori music has its own special characteristics.  Its development from pre-European to modern times is traced in this book by a noted ethnologist.  From an historical perspective, one has to recall the connection of the Māori to the sea.  They lived with the sea: they felt the rhythmical surge of the wave, they watched the undulating flight of sea birds.  They felt a nostalgic longing for distant lands, perhaps never to be visited again.  All within a hierarchical society controlled by hereditary chiefs.  Such is the setting, then the book traverses the various stages of musical development after those ancient times.  Many historical images.
