Product Description

The Music of Islam Vol. 15: Muslim Music of Indonesia, Aceh and West Sumatra by Various Artists

About the Artist

Produced and recorded by Prof. Margaret J. Kartomi of the Department of Music at Monash University located in Melbourne, Australia, this final volume, in The Music of Islam series, is the first extensive sound documentation of its kind. Over the past thirty years, as Prof. Kartomi and her fieldwork team traveled throughout most of the provinces of Indonesia to record traditional music, it became painfully apparent to her that one of the least known and most neglected categories of music in Indonesia were the Muslim-associated genres.

The music on this double CD are pieces selected from her extensive travels and work during 1392/1972-1406/1985, and feature numerous artists and ensembles, and were recorded in a variety of locations and acoustical environments. The instruments heard in this volume are both traditional Muslim instruments such as double-headed drums, frame drums, brass trays and the lute, as well as non-Muslim instruments such as bamboo flutes, oboes and bronze ensembles.

Having just read the ethnomusicological book "Divine Inspirations: Music and Islam in Indonesia," I desired to hear some musical examples but was astonished to find very few available in the United States. This album, part of the Music in Islam series, is a worthy rarity. It focuses on Western Sumatra and the Aceh province; if that sounds familiar, it is because the northern tip of Aceh was smashed by a tsunami in December 2004 with devastation and much loss of life. The instruments heard here are not the familiar metallophone gamelan but various types of drums and Arabian-influenced instruments, such as the gambus, an oud-like lute. Choirs, of men or women, sing religion-inspired songs in Indonesian Malay dialects or in Arabic. These areas are known to be the most orthodox and less syncretic in Indonesia. (Syncretism is the conservative way, and modernism or reform Islam in Indonesia is actually the most strict and limiting.) This is a 2-disc album of field recordings. Indonesian Islam is mainly Sunni, with a few remaining outposts of Shi'a along the western Sumatra coast. Sufism's practices, if not the formal system, probably was the first to be accepted by the populous because of its similarity to Hindu and Buddhist mystical practice and some remain among the Indonesia Sunni variations.

Disc 1 (75 min.) opens with a prayer and a pre-Islamic tiger-hunting tune. This is followed by a series of drumming tracks of processions, dirges, and competitions, with various rhythms. Up to a dozen drummers perform pieces in complex interplay. The sound is similar to Japanese taiko and Korean pungmul drumming with a touch of Anglo-Dutch rhythms. Brass trays are other percussion instruments, probably introduced by immigrants and traders from Yemen. Disc 2 (76 min.
