Pacific Islands Music Archive

I would like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to a fairly new Website, Sounds of the Pacific, where Pacific Islands music artists can promote their music. It also serves as an archive of the music from the region.

Music has always played a major cultural role in the Pacific Islands. In the early days music was used to remember myths, legends and heroic deeds of important people. Today, music helps define themselves and their culture.

According to the founders of the Sounds of the Pacific Website:

The mission of Sounds of the Pacific is to archive as much music from the Pacific as possible. The organisation has been born out of the realisation that up until this point there has been no platform to archive music from the Pacific. With this in mind, Sounds of the Pacific has created a website which is able to store and showcase music from the Pacific whilst also celebrating and promoting Pacific music artists.

To access their growing collection of Pacific Islands music feel free to visit their Website.
