To make this album, musicologist and slide guitar master Bob Brozman traveled to the tiny town of Rabaul in the East New Britain province of Papua New Guinea. There he worked with five different traditional string bands (which are usually made up of multiple guitarists, a ukelele, and a varying number of singers). This music has been minimally influenced by other cultures, and rarely (if ever) recorded. Brozman's idea was to document the music and to bring needed musical equipment to the island

Composed By – Bob Brozman (tracks: DVD-1, DVD-2, DVD-16).

Following his intriguing collaborations with musicians in Japan, India and some Indian Ocean islands, Brozman has been in Papua New Guinea to work with local bands around the town of Rabaul, largely destroyed by a volcano in the mid-1990s. Much of it sounds like simple, sturdy gospel or folk-blues, with a dash of Hawaii thrown in, but with an exotic eastern edge, thanks to the vocal choruses. This is a no-nonsense, charming album, and it comes with a DVD documentary about Brozman, the volcano and the project.

The global guitarist Brozman docks his boat in Papua New Guinea for Songs of the Volcano - so named because Rabaul, the town where it was recorded, has been destroyed by an eruption twice in the past century. The album joyously explores the music of the indigenous string bands that grew up playing the guitars and ukuleles left by 19th-century sailors. There is genuine virtuosity here, but it is also raw and earthily exempt from any commercial consideration. The sunny, upbeat rhythms reflect an idyllic lifestyle still untroubled by Western materialism.
