In 1976 the Ministry of Education of Samoa, under the Direction of Fanafi Larkin, assembled a Samoan cultural preservation project. The musical portion was recorded by Takoma Records over several sessions and then presented in a performance (pictured on cover*). Now, 30 years later, this important archival recording is being released in the hopes that it fulfills its mission: the preservation of Samoa’s musical culture.

Special thanks to the Second Samoan Church in Long Beach. Rev. Misipouena Tagaloa introduced us to Toeaso Faatili (Samoan Language and Culture), Maina Faiai (Choir Director), and Penny Laloulu (Piano Player) who identified the songs, selected the best version in the case of duplications (recorded at different sessions) and set the track order.

Thanks also to Bill Coben and Denny Bruce for their part in fostering and preserving this project.
