  • Description

    Item notes: The name of the composer, in brackets, follows the song titles: 1. Kakaiu Nanon Aio (Tammera); 2. I kuba ngai inanoni kawaiu (Kimaere); 3. Teirakeu (Burentarawa); 4. E a latau Te Mananga (Tiemiti); 5. I uti in Teingabong (Karaeba); 6. I mate bai rawa (Kimaere); 7. Ai kakamate Baira Ngai (Tinoka). Toteai makes a speech of thanks on behalf of the group; he expresses pride in the fact that all the songs come from Maiana [?], as do the group; he says farewell [NB: Gilbertese musicians' sense of identity is deeply linked with the songs of his home island, even more than the place itself].
