Music of Indonesia, Vol. 15: South Sulawesi Strings

Cultures along the Indonesian coast in South Sulawesi have adapted foreign string isntruments to Indonesian musical aesthetics. This event-oriented music (accompanied and instrumental) often accompanies acrobats and clowns performing at family celebrations and ceremonies. Both professional and informal duets, trios, or ensembles, play two-stringed lutes, lutes that probably originated in Arabia, violins, and zithers. 70 minutes. Recorded in South Sulawesi in 1996.

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