Isla de Pascua

Video Find of the Day

I'm fascinated by the way cultures impact one another. I've remarked before that I can hear the France in supposedly "traditional" Tahitian music. I think I can also hear the Spain, by way of Chile, in music and dance of la Isla de Pascua, AKA Easter Island, AKA Rapa Nui.

OK, I blow my thesis from the start with this one, a Rapa Nui Hymn. But wait: check out the costumes!


In this next, the background music has an unmistakable Spanish flavor.

OK. Well. This next one dashes my sorry thesis to bits. But I must include it as I am so fond of red.
