about

The "piece de resistance" of any Sundanese gamelan performance, Kawitan is actually a suite in five sections building in intensity, and is usually played as an overture to begin the Wayang puppet play. It can also accompany classical dance in which the performer portrays three character types progressing from subtle and refined to increasingly strong and powerful. The name literally means "Beginning".
