Nasib Muara Kuang

Sahilin is a blind guitarist who began to play guitar at the age of eight and has played professionally since he was sixteen. Siti Romah, a sighted singer, began singing with him in 1974. They perform mainly at domestic festivals, including weddings, circumcisions, thanksgivings, and moving to a new house. "Nasib Muara Kuang" belongs to the genre of regional songs (lagu daerah) of the independent-verse type, sung to repeating melodies by the two singers in alternation. Sahilin accompanies them on a guitar (gitar tunggal).
