The selection in this second volume covers music from the vast island of Sumatra (West Indonesia), The Moluccas Islands and the island of Bali. In the first sample from Sumatra (“Gondang Mula Mula”), recorded near the awesome Lake Toba, we find a ceremonial overture played during weddings and special occasions. The band is comprised of four instruments: two ‘Ketchapis’ (sort of a two-string ukulele), one ‘Serenar’(a wind instrument) and one simple metal spoon tapped against a glass bottle. The second track (“Andung Andung”) is instead music conceived to put people in the right mood for working in the fields, or boating on Lake Toba. Some sort of predecessor, if you will, of the “Ayo kerja” slogan and movement. The third track (“Hasa Hatan”) is a coda to all ceremonies in the region, and carries a benediction.The track from Moluccas (“Menari Sawat”) is a Muslim traditional dance from the area (menari), while sawat is the name of this type of music. The recording is taken in a small fishing village.We then move to Bali, where the first track (“Pubradaya”) is a sitting dance performed by a local Gamelan Orchestra. The following four tracks (“Barong Dance - Preren/Omang/Castel and Sadewa”) are all part of a suite of drums and gamelan music performed for the dance of a Barong, which is a mythical creature represented as half lion and half dog. Statues of barong are everywhere in Bali, typically near the gates or the entrance to palaces, temples (“pura”) or important places and landmarks. The last two pieces are typical Cremation Music played on the Tower at the Cremation Ceremonies in Bali, extremely interesting and unique. In the first of the two samples we have two instruments while in the second we have four.

The first volume gathers traditional music from different areas of the Indonesian archipelago, featuring music from Sulawesi, The Moluccas Islands (Spice Islands) and Central Java. In the first track from Sulawesi (“Gandrung Bulo”), the lead is taken by the percussion made of bamboo drums, later joined by two male voices in the second track. This is traditional entertainment music which is typically played at weddings, feasts and others special occasions. The last track is an instrumental one featuring the story-telling of an epic ballad. The singer is playing a traditional Indonesian instrument called Sinrili.The track from the Moluccas (“Tjakalele: War Dance”) is a typical Warrior Dance, and it is recorded in the main city of Maluku Islands. The music from Bali is performed by a chorus of seventy-eight men sitting in circle around the actors, during the representation of the so-called Ketchak (Monkey) Dance, which is still a big attraction for travellers coming to Bali. The selection from Central Java is a traditional piece called Perdjuritan dance (“Perdjuritan”), which is some sort of a soldiers’ dance. It is performed by a traditional Javanese orchestra (called Gamelan) which consists of drums, metal rattles and whistles. The last sample is recorded in the capital city of Jakarta and represents an example of the so called Sundanese music, typical of the western region of Java. Another example of traditional old entertainment music to be played during various festivities.
