Song of the Volcano: Papua New Guinea String Bands with Bob Brozman

We head to a Pacific destination this week in Global Sounds - the town where guitars were first introduced to Papua New Guinea. Rabaul has been destroyed twice by volcanoes and once more into the bargain during WWII. Hear the story of this place and its people through recordings of five different string bands made with American guitarist Bob Brozman on two visits between 2003-2004.
