"Music of Indonesia, Vol. 16: Music from the Southeast: Sumbawa, Sumba, Timo" - Various Artists

This CD, in conjunction with volumes 8 and 9, offers the first recorded survey of one of the least known and most musically surprising regions of Indonesia, the southeastern islands. Each of the three featured islands presents a unique sound, from voice and violin to funerary gong ensembles, to string bands of homemade guitars and violins. Many of the 15 tracks reveal foreign influences, both from colonization and American exposure.
