Traditional Music in New Caledonia

The French took formal possesion of New Caledonia in 1853 and made the country a penal colony. The indigenous poulation, The Kanak, were excluded from the French economy and relegated to reservations and their culture was lost and traditions forbidden...

A huge work on the Kanak cultural heritage has been carried out for over two decade and kanak traditional music is taught again in music schools. The Kanak flute, one of the oldest and most sacred instrument in New Caledonia, has been re-invented, for it had been lost due to the French occupation.
