The Tahitian Choir “Te Moko”
from Tahitian Choir Vol. II: Rapa Iti (Shanachie Entertainment www.shanachie.com 2005) —this is a song about a giant Lizard that was creating chaos and eating the island's people, and how the warrior Tana lured the lizard into a trap and killed it. Notice the high descant and the dropping of pitch at the end of phrases.
