For those of you who are wondering what New Caledonian music is like, I’d highly recommend “South Pacific Islands”, a Putumayo World Music compilation.
The three New Caledonian songs featured on the CD (Nengone Nodegu, Co Era So, and Watolea) are those you hear frequently on the radio in New Caledonia and they are certain to get you up out of your chair away from your screen, or at least a toe-tapping.
Added bonus: “Co Era So” is available as a music video on the album: you can get a glimpse of local culture.
Once you’re toe-tapping, think about hearing it live during your holiday in Noumea or on the Loyalty Islands.
Rainbow Tourism’s concierge can set up to meet with local artists and learn French if you want to understand the lyrics.
