Degung is an Indonesian instrumental music played by a small gamelan group centered around a vertical flute (suling) which have a tone similar to that of the transverse flute and shakuhachi flute that everyone plays at elementary school in Japan, gong instrument (degung), and a double-sided drum (kendang). This is the third in the Indonesian series of Soup Records in Japan, which has introduced music from around the world, and is a collection of recordings by the degung performing group Gapura. The A-side is a collection of their early works, and the B-side is their latest recordings from 1984, which evoke a minimal fusion sound with familiar harmonies. The range of performances and arrangements are well thought out. Lovely insturmental piece.
