About the music...

The traditional music (sample played while viewing this blog) of Micronesia is distinctively different from other regions of the Pacific. This music employs very few instruments with the main instruments being conch shell horns, sticks, and the "box" which is beaten by a multitude of hands to provide a beat to accompany the singing which always predominates. Small children as young as two years of age will sing songs, many of which are both difficult and traditional.
