These songs were recorded by Bill Donner in February 1982 on Sikaiana in the Solomon Islands. The singing group was led by Fane Telena and Reuben Tenai. There are a group of different songs. At 31:05, the singers begin singing the Kai tae Hakatele, a ritual song that is associated with traditional ritual when the Hale Aitu (Spirit House) was refurbished in pre-Christian times.
