Sunda: Instrumental Music and Sung Poetry Review

by John Storm Roberts

The charming and highly accessible music here consists of instrumentals by Kacapi-suling groups consisting of two differing zithers, a bamboo flute and a two-string fiddle, and of songs in all of the three main Sundanese modes with kacapi-suling backing. Though their English is better than Playa Sound's average, the notes are a little confusing.
