This is Raman Bah Tuin playing one of his nose flutes (pensol). Raman belongs to the Semai people, and lives in a village near Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This recording was made in the jungle, where he has a small patch of land.
I recorded several tunes with him on Minidisc, and the disc did fail a few times. There was enough that I could piece together for 3 full tunes, but the remaining recordings are assembled here. These are:
00:00 to 00:27 unknown tune 1
00:29 to 00:40 unknown tune 1
00:43 to 00:59 Chenloi
01:03 to 01:18 unknown tune 1
I have not applied any EQ to these recordings, as I wanted to leave exactly as it was at the time, complete with the buzz and hum of the jungle insects.
