An exciting and popular performance art, wayang golek -- the Sundanese puppet theater of West Java, Indonesia - celebrates significant life-cycle events and other important social occasions in the lives of the Sundanese people. This landmark 6-CD collection presents an entire all-night telling of one tale accompanied by gamelan, a musical ensemble of tuned gongs, metal-keyed instruments, drums, flute, fiddle and vocals. An enhanced CD makes the story accessible through a complete transcription of the original text in Sundanese and translations into English and Indonesian. This recording captures the excitement of a live performance by Asep Sunandar Sunarya Giri Harja III, the most popular and innovative puppeteer and troupe of the 1990s. Recorded in 1994, during the last years of the Soeharto regime, the performance serves as a prelude to a vital and tumultuous period in Indonesian history. This recording marks the first time that such a comprehensive educational package has been produced for this significant genre of world theater.
