B103 Sounds of the Soul: The Traditional Music of Timor-Leste/ Lian Husi Klamar: Musika Tradisional Husi Timor-Leste
with Lafaek Holds a Party
by Ros Dunlop

text in both Tetun and English

Sounds of the Soul: The Traditional Music of East TimorThe first book about the traditional music of Timor-Leste will appeal to those interested in the traditional culture of Timor, particularly its music, and the visual splendor of the country. The book, the culmination of ten years research,  features visually-rich pages in full color, with 20 reproductions of contemporary paintings by selected East Timorese artists. Twenty traditional songs complete with text and music notation in both Western and Indonesian systems. A separate 52-page coloring booklet, Lafaek Holds a Party, introduces Timor's traditional instruments to children aged 5 to 12, with delightful illustrations by Timorese artists, Tony Amaral and Pelle Pereira.

Author and musician Ros Dunlop made her first trip to Timor-Leste in April 2002 with Timor activist brothers Robert and Martin Wesley-Smith. Ros and Martin gave concerts of Martin’s audiovisual pieces about East Timor. Ros then began visiting Timor-Leste regularly to record its special music. The skilled musicians who participated were acutely aware of the importance of recording their music for posterity. The translators and assistants who helped to organize the recording sessions, the artists from Arte Moris Art School, and the young Timorese from the audiovisual archive, Centro Archivo Max Stahl Timor-Leste, helped to make this project happen.

2012, 160 pp. $65 paperback with accompanying DVD video and CD audio recordings of traditional music and performances

The book is wonderful and everyone love it. I am playing the music the sound in my car. Loving it. The book is so genuine, like the music inside, ‘genuine, innocence and spontaneous’. --Josh Trindade, Advisor, Research, Analysis and Social-Cultural Issues, Presidential Palace, Dili

Timor Lorosa’e: One Momentous YearB113 Timor Lorosa’e: One Momentous Year
Photographs and stories by a collection of various authors

With little access to news and information in the immediate aftermath of the 1999 destruction, most Timorese had never seen the photographs or read others’ stories about the landmark events of 1999-2000.

The UN published bi-lingual (English, Tetun) this impressionistic history containing photographs and anecdotes.

 United Nations Transitional Administration in East Timor, Sept 2000, 112 pp. $20 full-color paperback.
