Very primitive music that has not changed for ages. "Original Ethnic Music of the People of the World" is the IMG_0004banner of the italian label 'Albatros'. Liners note : "Two distinct musical culture of the Australian Aborigines are documented in this recording : that of the Cape York peninsula in north Queensland and that of Elcho Island, to the north-east of Arnhem Land. This material was gathered during the course of a field-trip made by Wolfgang Laade, Professor of Ethnomusicology at the University of Zürich, sponsored by the Australian Institute of Aboriginal Studies during 1963-1964. The documents include both ceremonial and secular music, and of particular interest are the examples using the didjeridu, the most characteristic instrument of the origial culture of Australia".
