The music of the Solomon Islands on NASA's Golden Record

To the Solomon Times:My name is Biliana Grozdanova and I am a documentary filmmaker working on a project about NASA's Golden Record. The record was launched into outer space in 1977, carrying 27 tracks of world music, one of which is from the Solomon Islands. I am planning a research visit in April of this year and am doing my initial reaching out. I was wondering if anyone with your publication is familiar with the NASA initiative or was perhaps involved, or would be interested in writing a piece about our film project? Are there any cultural/music organizations you recommend we get in touch with? We have connected with some of the original musicians who performed for the record and will also be speaking with them.Many thanks and I truly look forward to hearing from you.My best,Biliana
