N:Omai was a Tahitian man. When Cook came past on his second voyage, Omai
N:asked to be taken along on his explorations and proved himself useful in
N:communicating with other islanders over the course of the Voyage.
H:Omai decided he would stay aboard ship once the voyage was over and visited 
H:England,where he became something of a celebrity figure. A play was written 
H:casting him as a Tahitian prince who traveled the world and had all kinds 
H:of adventures. This tune is from that play.
