1995 release. "Vietnam's long history at the point of intersection between different political and cultural spheres is reflected by the large number of minorities living in different parts of the country, especially in the highlands to the north and west. Today, these regions present an extraordinary linguistic and cultural mosaic of immense variety. The present CD is a sample from that copious treasury, most of which, regrettably, has yet to be documented. The contents include a number of examples of the fantastic rhythmic music played on tuned gongs by the E De people in the central highlands, as well as other exciting instrumental and vocal instruments."
