Music of Indonesia, Vol. 13: Kalimantan Strings

An overview of string music from Kalimantan, the Indonesian part of Borneo—a region little known for music (especially string music), even within Indonesia. Musicians from five areas play music for parties, weddings, celebrations, and other local secular events. Folk songs and contemporary tunes with and without singing are played on traditional and modern regional isntruments; plucked lutes, bowed lute and flute. Three delicate duets conclude the recordings. 73 minutes. Recorded in Kalimantan, 1995.

The published liner notes, along with corrections and supplementary materials, are available here.
