The schedule can also be accessed at the following URL: The traditional music of Micronesia is distinctively different from other regions of the Pacific. This music employs very few instruments with the main instruments being conch shell horns, sticks, and the "box" which is beaten by a multitude of hands to provide a beat to accompany the singing which always predominates. With no written language, the traditional music of Micronesia encompasses the rich tapestry of tradition, spiritualism and culture of the Micronesian people. The anthology runs for 90 minutes in which the traditional chants are introduced followed by the songs of Micronesia including many from the Marshall Islands and Arno Atoll (Aeroplane Song). These songs range from traditional songs which have a chant-like presentation followed by later songs which use background instruments. The program culminates in two contemporary interpretations of traditional Micronesian chants. Also, the supporting Web site to the anthology is as follows: Thank you very much.
