The Sounds of Melanesia

This playlist is brought to you by our partners at the Wantok Musik Foundation, who record, release and promote music from Indigenous Melanesia and Australia. These particular songs fuse contemporary styles with traditional languages and stories. According to Wantok: “There may be different sounds, different beats, different instruments, but we are singing the same things, we are talking with a common language – with one talk.”
