Label: Bärenreiter-Musicaphon – BM 30 SL 2560 Series: An Anthology Of South-East Asian Music – Format: Vinyl, LP, Album Country: Germany Genre: Folk, World, & Country Style: Gamelan
Extensive anthology on the otherworldly and quite frankly mesmerising musical world of the Indonesian island of Lombok. This one spans mind-boggling poly-rhythmic onslaughts to more contemplative wind-instrument pieces, complex vocal performances and a really unique recording with the mouth harp. Complete with extensive liner notes detailing musical scores, instruments used and ritual context of each piece, this is the definitive introduction to the Gamelan wormhole. (Vinyl NM / Sleeve VG+ / Ex library copy).
