AllMusic Review by

The fifth volume of the extensive compendium of Javanese Gamelan music focuses on the music of the ancient capital city of Yogyakarta, which has a unique, lively, sonorous sophistication. Tracks include both vocal and instrumental compositions, with a focus on the music's metallic timbre, in comparison to the warmer, richer tones of the wooden instruments of other districts.
