After a long summer break, The World’s Jukebox return with a new volume of our serie of World Library of Folk and Primitive Music LPs. We jump from volume 5 to 7 as i don’t have volume 6:Scotland (This volume have been reedited on cd by Rounder but it’s also out-of-print). Volume 7 of the World Library is presenting the wide range of Indonesian music, from New Guinea to the islands of Borneo, Bali and Java. The diverse crossings of ethnies and influences on the islands gives a remarquable variety of styles and settings, from tribal music to the famous sophisticated gamelan orchestras. The notes and recordings for this volume were edited by Dutch ethnomusicologist (he introduced the term himself) Jaap Kunst. (Click here to read his biography)
