Product Description

Artist: Telek

Experience the voice of a living tradition...that of Telek with his album SERIOUS TAM. Deeply rooted in the heritage of his people from the volcanic village of Raluana in Papua New Guinea, Telek has been influenced by a wide variety of styles from ancient elements of Tolai culture to the pop sensibility of the Beatles. He has a very exciting, interesting sound that blends his island's unique "snaking" vocal harmonies with tropical guitar and ancestral drums, like the hourglass-shaped kundu. The stirring music of Telek has transcended borders with its lush, accessible sound and won him a coveted Australian ARIA Award for Best World Music Album.
