MAITAI: tahiti cocktail


This is an LP of "traditional" Tahitian folk-type songs and dances. The reason I put the word "traditional" in parentheses is because one of the tunes was co-written by Eddie Lund and more than half of the others were co-written with Yves Roches. So I don't know how truly traditional they are. Anyway...they sound traditional with lot's of drums, chanting, singing and vahines shaking the hips and all that good stuff.

Performances by: Groupes Folkloriques COCO TEMAEVA, TAHITI NUI, CERA PHINE, TEHAHE REHEVA, and PUPU TAMATA NOA.

On Tamure Records as part of the Manuiti Productions Musicales Polynesiennes Series. Year of release is unknown.
