In a lengthy overture to Wayang Sasak, from the island of Lombok, a wooden flute frets through snarly, growled vocals, over a lively, clangy bed of sound, anchored in a pulse-like, rhythmic gong ostinato. A dry drum dresses the sound more than defining its rhythm through the piece's many transitions. In South Kalimantan, the mixed-race Banjar people find themselves caught between their old court gamelan tradition, introduced by the Javanese, and today's prevalent Islam, with its objections to the tradition. A long overture from a shadow-puppet play seems close to the Balinese sound with its fast and faster rhythms, and dense, clanging texture.

Volume 14 in the Smithsonian Folkways Music of Indonesia series focuses on three lesser-known forms of Indonesian gamelan orchestras and wayang shadow puppet theater. Ethnomusicologist Philip Yampolsky begins this compilation with music of the wayang Sasak from the island of Lombok, which lies directly east of Bali. Wayang Sasak mixes Javanese-style puppets, Islamic stories, and Balinese and Sasak musical idioms. The next style from the district of Banyumas in Central Java is a streamlined version that simply uses four actor-singers, but no instruments or puppets.
