Music of Indonesia, Vol. 5: Betawi and Sundanese Music of Java

A splendid hybrid created by the encounter between the cultures of Batavia and the surrounding Sunda region. These recordings from 1990-1992 include village gamelan music and a Sundanese repertoire played on brass instruments, gongs, and drums. 73 minutes. "Its variety—in sound, feel, and purpose—is astonishing and inspiring." — Rhythm Music.

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