Easter Island is located in the Pacific Ocean. Though its earliest inhabitants are ethnically Polynesian, the island is controlled by the South American state of Chile. Traditional music from the island consists of choral singing and chanting, similar to Tahitian music. Families often performed as choirs, competing in a hotly disputed annual concert. They were accompanied by a trumpet made from a conch shell and a percussivedancer jumping onto a stone which is set over a calabashresonator. Other instruments include the kauaha, the jaw bone of a horse, upaupa, an accordion, and stones, which are clapped together for percussive effect. Due to ongoing contacts with Chile and elsewhere in South America, Latin American music has had influences on the music of Easter Island. Tango, for example, has spawned an Easter Island style called tango Rapanui, characterized by a simple guitar accompaniment instead of the frenetic bandoneon. Plantilla:Polynesianmusic
