about

“George Telek, Papua New Guinea's most celebrated musician returns with his first new material since 2004's gorgeous ‘Amette’. Coaxed back into a Melbourne studio by long time collaborator David Bridie, Telek has lost none of his mesmerising beauty in gentle Lullaby-like melodies and soothing vocals, while his more upbeat songs preserve the lively PNG stringband aesthetic. Sung in his native Kuanuan, English and Tok Pisin (Pidgin), the tracks benefit from the production that Bridie and Tim Cole layer into the mix, resulting in one of those albums that balances respect for traditional village music with just enough technology to satisfy contemporary sensibilities. “
