From the back cover: This recording of music for the all-night wayang, or shadow play, was made in an open pavilion within the walls of the village temple in Teges Kanyinan, a district of Pliatan village, whose famous gamelan gong kebyar is internationally known though tours and several recordings.
The sample is one of the more "subtle" or slower paced compositions. A composition played for scenes of sadness, "when the puppets are weeping." It is also appropriate when the gender wayang is used for cremations.
