Strange question but maybe somebody knows...

I was looking into going to Moorea soon and I came upon this video by "egasel" advertising the Intercontinental Resort on the main Moorea page under "See Moorea". Besides Moorea looking absolutely fascinating, I love the song that is playing on the video. Does anyone recognize this song, the artist or song title? That song makes me want to go there even more now!! So relaxing! so if anyone knows the song, please inform me, thanks!

Well, kind of sounds like Deep Forest to me, but I have most of their albums and am not familiar with that tune. I'd suggested sending the poster (egasel) a private message. Maybe he/she knows.

In any event if you really like the tune you may want to check out Deep Forest regardless of whether or not they are the artists on that particular piece. My favorite album of theirs is probably "Comparsa". Wherever they travel around the world they gather music from local artist to encorporate in their music. The lead singer on "Noonday Sun" ( you can hear it here: http://www.deepforestmusic.com/df03.htm) is woman who was 100 (believe or not) when the song was recorded and died during the period in which the album was being recorded. Man, it's incredible a person that old could have the energy to sing like that (listen to the piece and you'll see what I mean). Who knows, maybe that's what killed her, but if so she went out with a bang!

dolcenotte,

If the song you are looking for is on the limited edition Intercontintental CD of Tahitian music, I have the 2-CD set and can get the song for you in mp3 format. Email me at BarbiJKM@aol.com.

On the "Moana Lounge" CD called "Polynesian Vibes" (Disk 1) put out by the Intercontinental, the song is called "Black Pearl" by Pacific Islands. It is Track 7 on the CD, and runs 6 minutes and 29 seconds.

wow, thank you so much everybody for replying so quickly! Barbi, I would so appreciate it if you sent me that song! i'll send you an email, thanks so much! Does the whole 2 cd set sound like that? it's incredible..

Lord, thank you for the tip about deep forest, a friend of mine also told me about them, i have to check it out.

I also love enigma, delerium, enya, and amethystium. while trying to search for that song on amazon, i came across another amazing artist called Bliss, check it out! One more thing, what exactly do we call this music? world music, easy listening, new age??

Any other great world music fitting for French Polynesia? I want to get in the mood lol. i am actually going to punta cana, dominican republic in july, and it cant come soon enough...but am looking into island hopping to tahiti, moorea, and bora bora in the next couple of years when i get engaged and married to my boyfriend =)
