Title:The poet's salary
Abstract:"For the first time in many years, on the little island of Motalava in Vanuatu, a new song will be composed in the island's ancestors' language, the language of god Quat, and become part of the island's repertoire. But what is even more unusual is the fact that this new traditional chant has been written to honour a White man, a young French linguist nicknamed 'Alex' by everyone on the island. The Poet's Salary tells of the daily life of ethnographers while doing fieldwork, through a vivid and colourful account of the mutual exchanges between the people of Motalava and Alexandre François and Monika Stern (respectively ethnolinguist and ethnomusicologist)"--Container
