Ethnic Folkways Library

English note: Civilized society are very aware to recorded music. This album entitled Music of Indonesia was produced by New Yorker — hopefuly N.Y.C. means it — on 1950. This album presented 10 folkrythms from central Java, Sunda, Batak, Minangkabau, and Bali. Those rare music were recorded live from the place and the people who created those music. It’s amazing. Thank God that there is foreign producer who recorded those music in the old time when Indonesian people might be not yet aware to do that. *
