      Description hide

      Melodic gong ensembles and male singing with percussion are found throughout Sumatra. Two of each are heard here: West Sumatran talempong (in two contrasting forms): kulintang from Lampung, at the southern end of the island; the choral didong songs of the Gayo in Aceh; and Salawat dulang, competitive duet singing from west Sumatra that surprisingly uses popular songs as a vehicle for commenting on points of Islamic doctrine. 73 minutes. "Part of a monumental and enjoyable series....Documents gong music that has riffs as concise and propulsive as dance tracks." —New York Times
