Product Description

Review

A fascinating biographical account. . . the book is outstanding material for teaching a concept that readers surely will not miss: that, beyond artifice, music has served well the workings of power and radical politics. JOURNAL OF ASIAN STUDIES, Vol 62:4 Such is the remarkable achievement of Margaret Kartomi's patient and obviously loving efforts with this project. A "little book" perhaps, but one for which the author and publisher are due our special thanks. ASIAN STUDIES REVIEW One of the most special gamelan(s) outside of Indonesia . . . is the subject of Margaret Kartomi's monograph, The Gamelan Digul and the Prison Camp Musician Who Built It. . . . An elegant and tuneful field recording of Pontjopangrawit's rebab playing made by Hood is included as an "extra feature" on the CD. . . . Kartomi presents a compelling yarn. --BIJDRAGEN TOT DE TAAL-, LAND- EN VOLKENKUNDE (Matthew Isaac Cohen)
