Music Of Samoa
Traditional Samoan musical instruments included a fala , which is a rolled-up mat beaten with sticks. It is an idiophone which often accompanied choral singing . Another idiophone, a soundingboard , sometimes accompanied the solo recitation of poetry. A conch shell was blown for signaling. Amusement for small groups and individuals in private was afforded by a jaw harp , a raft panpipe , and a nose-blown flute . In recent times it is not uncommon to see the use of Pātē , a hollowed out slit drum which was introduced by Cook Islands missionaries visiting Sāmoa. It usually replaces the Fala and is played in the same rhythmic patterns. A musical or theatrical presentation celebrating a special event in which performance groups alternate in an attempt to outdo each other's efforts has come to be called a fiafia . It is often a hotel performance, in which dances now called siva Samoa
Samoa
and sasa are performed
