This album features the "Windim Mambu," or sacred flute music of the Madang region of New Guinea; exclusively performed by men, the music is believed to literally become the cries of the spirits for the women and children who hear it coming from the forest. Flute playing of this type is greatly respected within the tribal culture and both the making of the instruments (which are thought to improve with age, having a life span of about 10 years) and the learning of the music are time-consuming processes for which skill is gained slowly.

Audio CD, September 14, 1999. I am starting to listen to more and more "world" music and this is a great recording. It is very spiritual and takes you to another place. THe tone of the flutes is suberb and the players skillfully controll their instruments.
