AllMusic Review by

Almost none of the traditional music of Malaysia is available on record in this country. This fine LP go some way to redress that lack. Though it largely features courtly music from Khota Baru, the capital of Kelantan state, this recording includes both Indian and Chinese Malay music (including a charming opera aria) as well as Murut, Dayak and other music from Borneo.
