Synopsis

Album Description
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.
