Music of Indonesia, Vol. 8: Vocal and Instrumental Music from East and Central Flores

These 1993 and 1994 recordings present the virtually unknown, rich, and highly diverse singing traditions from the eastern regions of the island of Flores, an island east of Bali. Among the wonderful traditions presented here are polyphonic singing styles strikingly similar to some Balkan music, large powerful choruses from Sikka, music for double flute, gong and drum ensembles. Extensive notes and map. 70 minutes. "Each volume is an education in itself." — Request

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