Gili Gio

Music by traditional, lyrics by Jay Sand

©2017 Jay Sand

A drumming song from Maraloko on the island of Flores in Indonesia. This is actually two songs mashed into one — “Gili Gio” and “Seu Sidu Seda,” both of which appear on one of French-Canadian ethnomusicologist Francis Corpataux’s extraordinary collections of children’s songs from around the world. This one appears on “Les Chants Des Enfants Du Monde vol. 4” which features children’s songs from Nepal, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia.
