ENGLISH

The Fataluku people have a fascinating tradition of music and dance. A number of different types of musical instruments used in the Lautem district of Timor-Leste were identified in this research project. Musical instruments used by the Fataluku people include oi-oil, keko, fara-fara, moto me'n-me'n, pepur, kakal and puhu-puhu. Music played by Fataluku performers is composed around the Fataluku language. It often has an irregular rhythm, which often follows the inflections of vaihoho singing, rather than adhering to a specific time signature. There seems to be no moderation for how an instrument is to be played – tuning differs significantly between different players. All instruments were found to be tuned near to an E-flat, perhaps matching the regular vocal range for Fataluku singing. Most instruments have a primary function of frightening away animals and birds from eating crops, but are also played for entertainment for the performer alone or for use at ceremonial occasions such as weddings, or to communicate across distances. Knowledge of the music and how to make and play these instruments is largely endangered given the small number of people who can still make and play them.

ENGLISH

The Fataluku people maintain a strong connection to their rugged forested mountain and coastal landscapes. These landscapes provide important ecological and biodiversity functions that are used by the Fataluku people to weave, make cotton, pottery and handicrafts, and to hunt and fish to meet livelihood needs.

A number of traditional craft traditionally produced by the Fataluku people include basketry, weaving, pottery, children's toys, jewellery and hunting tools, including spears, blow pipes and bow and arrows and traps.
