Thread Name: Help: Melanesian Harmonies
Subject: Melanesian Harmonies
Greetings. I would be grateful if someone could point me in the right direction please to find scores or Midi files of traditional Melanesian songs, c/w harmony lines. I'm not talking about Hawaiian or Polynesian songs, nor songs from New Zealand, but those from the Western Pacific (including the Torres Strait Islands of northern Australia). This music is characterised by strong melody and soaring female harmonies. Any help appreciated.

Regards, John
