AllMusic Review by

Bravo to King for putting the Surakarta style (also called Solonese) on CD. This is a 1992 recording of three gendhing bonang from the Mangkunegaran palace. Gendhing bonang, which use the gamelan's drums and bronze instruments only, not the strings, flute, or singers, start slow and build up to thunder and lightning.
