AllMusic Review by

This is one of surprisingly few recordings of the elegant and beautiful West Javanese art-music genre tembang Sunda. An ensemble of plucked zithers and a flute accompany female and male soloists features Ida Widawati, one of the best-regarded of current singers. The album, recorded in France in 1993 during a European tour, offers a good introduction to a music that everyone should know about.
