Songs of the Volcano

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 by war in less than 60 years. Hear the remarkable story of this place and its people through recordings of five different string bands made between 2003-2004.
