UW Ethnomusicology Archives: Oceania

The UW Eth­no­mu­si­col­ogy Archives has been col­lecting and curating unique ethnographic music recordings, films, and video since 1962.

About this page 

This page showcases the UWEA field and concert recordings from Oceania. The recordings on this page are divided geographically based partially on the UN geoscheme for Oceania. Melanesia and Micronesia, which are different regions, have been placed under the same category because they contained so few entires. New Zealand, which is sometimes considered the same region as Australia, has been placed under Polynesia to reflect the historical connections of the indigenous communities. Hawaii, which is part of the United States, is placed under Polynesia for the same reason.
