about

This is the sixth album of gamelan music from Cirebon, Indonesia presented by Gamelan Sinar Surya, a group of musicians based in Santa Barbara, California. This album is specially dedicated to Denggung, a sacred form of Gamelan that is found in the three royal palaces in Cirebon: Keraton (Palace) Kasepuhan, Kanoman, and Kacirebonan. All three Denggung sets are extremely old, a legacy from the sultanate of Banten and, according to legend, were inherited from the Pajajaran Kingdom around 500 years ago. Of the three ancient Denggung sets, only the one at the Kacirebonan Palace is still being played. The members of Gamelan Sinar Surya are working together with the Kacirebonan Palace ensemble to help regenerate this sacred Gamelan tradition. It is our hope that the tradition of Denggung Cirebon will continue to be preserved.

——————————————

This album is dedicated to three members of the Keraton Kacirebonan royal family who care deeply about the preservation of Denggung Cirebon:

Sultan Kacirebonan IX P. R. Abdul Gani Natadiningrat SE, Elang Raja Muhammad Kusuma Natadiningrat, and P. Iyan Ariffudin Dendabrata SH

Salam Budaya 🙏🏼

Rekaman ini merupakan album yang ke enam musik Gamelan Cirebon, Indonesia, yang di tampilkan oleh grup Gamelan Sanggar Sinar Surya yang berbasis di California.
Album ini secara khusus didedikasikan untuk Denggung, sebuah gamelan sakral yang terdapat di tiga keraton di Cirebon, yaitu Keraton Kasepuhan, Kanoman dan Kacirebonan. Tiga perangkat gamelan Denggung ini sangat kuno, warisan dari Kesultanan Banten dan menurut legenda dari Kerajaan Pajajaran sekitar 500 tahun yang lalu. Dari tiga keraton di Cirebon, hanya ansambel Denggung di Keraton Kacirebonan yang masih aktif sampai dengan sekarang. Saat ini Gamelan Sinar Surya sedang bekerja bersama dengan anggota2 ansambel Denggung disana untuk meregenerasi tradisi gamelan sakral ini. Semoga tradisi Denggung Cirebon tetap dilestarikan.

——————————————

Album ini didedikasikan untuk tiga orang dari keluarga Keraton Kacirebonan yang sangat peduli tentang pelestarian tradisi Denggung Cirebon:

Sultan Kacirebonan IX P. R. Abdul Gani Natadiningrat SE, Elang Raja Muhammad Kusuma Natadiningrat, dan P. Iyan Ariffudin Dendabrata SH

Salam Budaya 🙏🏼
