Music of Indonesia, Vol. 7: Music from the Forests of Riau and Mentawai

Recorded in 1993 and 1994, this recording focuses on the music of three indigenous forest societies of western Indonesia. It features songs and drumming for shamanic curing rituals and private singing and instrumental music (played on xylophones or a gong-row) performed for entertainment or emotional release. Extensive notes complement these rare recordings. 70 minutes. "Lots of spirit here." — St. Louis Riverfront Times

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