A tiger-capturing song 6'26
(Muslim Music of Indonesia - Aceh and West Sumatra: Music of Islam Vol.15 - 2 CD set) [Celestial Harmonies]
This is the one volume in the Music of Islam series not produced by David Parsons. Prof.Margaret Kartomi facilitated these recordings with paragraphs of apology for the "field recording limitations" that pertain to balance and clarity. More at issue should be an admission that all of this material was sadly recorded on substandard non-professional equipment. The music is fortunately extraordinary and rarely heard otherwise. Prof.Kartomi's notes are interesting and extremely detailed, with some references being overly cryptic and inaccessible to a non-academic readership. In fact the CD booklet is so thick it barely fits in the case.
