The Tahitian Choir - Rapa Iti (Skip to :42 for speech free listening)

 

Microtonal singing from Rapa Iti.  I just can't get enough of this.  The thrill of not knowning when the pitch will drop and how far it will is thilling as a western-eared, cultural outsider! 

 

Wikipedia: Rapa, sometimes called Rapa Iti (Little Rapa, to distinguish it from "Rapa Nui" (Big Rapa), a name for Easter Island), is the largest and only inhabited island of the Bass Islands in French Polynesia. An older name for the island is Oparo[1] Its area is 40 km2 with a population of almost 500 and a max elevation of 650 m. Its main town is Ahuréi.



Fresh Prince

 

Some people are just so clever! I love this clip and can’t get enough of it. Or, as put through 7 languages on Google Translate = "Some people are too smart! A can not get enough of this fragment."  What fun!
