DISCOVER INDONESIA:
Music of Indonesia

One in the Smithsonian Folkways series

Artist: Various

Indonesia is a huge country, spread over hundreds of islands, encompassing peoples of many different languages, religions, and musical cultures. Fifteen tracks have been selected to provide an exciting and varied introduction to musical styles from different parts of the country. From rowdy gamelan and xylophones to quiet night music for flute, from Christian church harmonies to dissonant part-singing, featuring brilliant performances on guitars, xylophones, gong rows, and brass bands, this anthology will delight both new listeners and those already familiar with the court gamelan of Java. All digitally recorded on location between 1990 and 1997.

Recorded, produced, and annotated by Philip Yampolsky with the collaboration of the Indonesian Society for the Performing Arts, and funded by the Ford Foundation.

With every purchase comes documentation that explains not just the sounds but their circumstances -- their who, what, when and why.

Many of the CDs are not accompanied by the originial album cover as some of them are produced only one or two copies at a time and the covers are not as readily reproducible.
