An overview of string music from Kalimantan, the Indonesian part of Borneo—a region little known for music (especially string music), even within Indonesia. Musicians from five areas play music for parties, weddings, celebrations, and other local secular events. Folk songs and contemporary tunes with and without singing are played on traditional and modern regional instruments; plucked lutes, bowed lute and flute.
