Various - Sounds From The Archipelago Vol. 2
Various - Sounds From The Archipelago Vol. 2
Shiok! | LP | 9

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 etchapis' *sort of a two/string ukulele(, one erenar'*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.Track list> SIDE A> 1. SUMATRA *Recorded August 27th, 1960( Gondang Mula Mula 2. Andung Andung 3.
