This is the most comprehensive musical portrait ever of life in a Papua New Guinea rainforest community. Three CDs and an 80-page illustrated booklet feature two generations of Bosavi musicaians and twenty-five years of field recordings.
This gorgeous, three-CD boxed set provides the unprecedented opportunity of experiencing pop music at ground zero. The Bosavi people of New Guinea's Southern Highlands were self-sufficient and undisturbed until the incursion of Christian missionaries in the early 1970s. The religious ceremonial songs prohibited by the evangelicals survive in "i"Disc 3: Sounds and Songs of Ritual and Ceremony, collected by field recordist Steven Feld in the 1960s-'70s. Rich with responses to the bountiful natural world around them, the mostly vocal ritual songs include funerary weeping songs and gisalo seance songs. The accompanying 80-page booklet helps put this material in a cultural perspective. At the far extreme are the effervescent compositions by the first-generation string bands who can be heard inventing Bosavi pop music on Disc 1: Guitar Bands of the 1990s. Flush with an out-of-place, almost Appalachian flavor and buzzing with slightly discordant guitar harmonies, the performances are so full of enthusiasm and steely attention to newly emergent craft, it's hard to turn your back on their sheer joy. "i"Disc 2: Sounds and Songs of Everyday Life straddles the religious and entertainment discs with distinctive male and female work songs, including "Men's Vocal Quartet with Seed-pod Rattles," which only needs a guitar arrangement to become the next local pop chartbuster. This disc closes with an intimate 25-minute soundscape of the aural environment of the Bosavi, ripe with bird and insect songs plus noises of villagers at work and play. --Bob Tarte
Kids work in teams where all voices matter
Reinforces what kids
learn in class
Whether you’re a parent, educator, or volunteer who works with young people, you want nothing but the best for your kids. After a year with so many uncertainties, you and your kids are ready to rebuild the social interaction and skill-building that needed to be put on pause.
DI offers an experience, through which—as one parent told us—kids find their superpowers. Working in teams to solve STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) Challenges, quiet children come alive. Kids who like things their way realize how much better their ideas are with input from their teammates. And if your child hasn’t found his or her niche yet? No problem. DI introduces kids to a wide range of ideas, skills, and techniques while solving Challenges their way.
Parents, get your
to your school.
Our STEAM-based Challenges are designed to prepare kids for the future of work by instilling these skills:
STEAM-based challenges that students solve in teams.
Kids blossom developing ideas that build on what they learn in school.
Each student has a voice and space to develop unique abilities and talents.
Team members make all the decisions and even manage the budget.
DI is an international problem-solving competition for students of all ages. Our student-led STEAM-based Challenges reinforce core social-emotional learning (SEL) competencies—social awareness, relationship skills, responsible decision making, self-awareness, and self-management.
These projects can be incorporated into distance learning, but are also a great way to bring kids together after a long time apart. DI offers an inclusive learning environment where all students feel welcomed and valued.
