  1. What a great cassette! I love that calung sound, and Darso's a master in it. Thanks for sharing, Henk.

  3. I never heard of Darso before I spotted one of your uploads. There's no entry on Discogs or Allmusic, I have the feeling in the Western world he was never recognized, he's non-existent, and unless some fancy label release Darso's music as the latest hip thing, his impact will quickly fade and die... which is a shame given what his work stands for.

    I guess even in Indonesia he's not a house-hold name anymore. His Indonesian Wiki-entry is more than fragmentary...

  4. Oh, here in West-Java he is still very, very much loved, but he was always doing very Sundanese music... Extremely hard to find his music, the old cassettes, loads of pirated dvd's but that's just his newer Pop-Sunda music....

  5. His old calung was never re-issued on VCD, so this music is only appreciated by the ones who have these cassettes. Since they're so old and hard to find, most will only know his pop music, and that's entirely different stuff, of what I heard. The mass never has an enyclopedic interest in the history of culture, I guess...
