Papua New Guinea Post-Courier: Research into ancestral sounds

Papua New Guinea Post-Courier: Research into ancestral sounds. “Researchers are now putting greater emphasis on studying the ancestral sounds from Papua New Guinea, says Don Niles of the Institute of Papua New Guinea Studies. ‘What if you could hear sounds made in your area over a hundred years ago? Would you recognise the songs or would they be unfamiliar? Are they anything like the songs sung today? Could you understand the words of a story told in your language or would there be too many old words that are hard to understand? Is this story still told today?’ Prof Niles said.”
