Located in the Southwest Pacific region, Papua New Guinea consists of the eastern half of the island of New Guinea and the surrounding islands. Sanguma was a Papua New Guinean musical ensemble that was active from 1977 to 1985, and later became one of first music group in the country to perform internationally while working with Ric Halstead, a musician who was also active in the Hong Kong jazz scene in 80's. This is a true gem released in 1984, when the group had gained a lot of international experience and was entering a period of maturity. The album contains 7 tracks ranging from jazz funk, fusion, ethno instrumental, ethnic ensembles, all with a more sophisticated flavor while retaining a sense of their native culture. Just brilliant. This LP release is very valuable among most cassette releases.
