In reader-friendly language, this useful book introduces the wide range of regional styles of Polynesian song and dance, spanning the traditional and the modern. The artistic links which draw together whole groups of island nations are explained, and the particular identifying features of each country are presented. Although an audience may view only the final product, this book draws attention to the varied processes of composition and teaching, from the casual to the highly structured. Recognizing the supreme role of song and dance to communicate the uttered word, attention is given to the importance of audience reactions and aesthetic perceptions. Musical instruments are examined as solo or group artifacts, and their tuning systems detailed.
