CD1 previously released as FSD2057. CD2 and CD3 new titles. Premiere of Srimpi Songapati, the forbidden dance gamelan that was handed down by the royal family of Kuraton Surakarta, located in Central Java. The charm of a mixed chorus with a large gamelan ensemble is irresistible. Plus the final recording made by the late Miayawidad, the last of the real court musicians. Includes the famous tunes of Gendhing Bonang, regarded as the essence of gong music. Recorded in 1992.
