Malaysian Shadow Play and Music Continuity of an Oral Tradition
Although this work starts with a general introduction to the different types of wayang kulit performed in Malaysia, it breaks new ground by concentrating on the musical, rather than dramatic, aspects of performance. Most of the book is focussed on the orchestra and musical style as observed while the author was a student performer with one of the finest troupes of the time. 149 pages with a glossary, bibliography appendices and an index.
