This book is a musical ethnography of the Duna people of Papua New Guinea. A people who have experienced extraordinary social change in recent history, their musical traditions have also radically changed during this time. New forms of music have been introduced, while ancestral traditions have been altered or even abandoned. This study shows how, through musical creativity, Duna people maintain a connection with their past, and their identity, whilst simultaneously embracing the challenges of the present.Society for Ethnomusicology 1994, A Manual for Documentation, Fieldwork, and Preservation for Ethnomusicologists, Society for Ethnomusicology, Bloomington, Indiana.
