The album comes with the entire play transcribed and translated into English as well as in its native language. The performance comes courtesy of a 20-member performance troupe led by wayang golek puppeteer Asep Sunandar Sunarya who really make the story come alive with their incredible playing and expressive voices. The only issue is the sound quality, which is not terrible but still contains some crowd noise and occasional lapses in levels. Still, this is a very unique performance that deserves a listen by anyone curious to hear a rare and interesting art form being performed by one of its best practitioners.
