This piece is tuned in a pentatonic Indo-Java key called “slendro”. It is one of the two keys used in traditional Indonesian ensembles. I chose this mode because it allows a harmonious play, regardless of the skill of the player.

The feet of this piece can be disassembled with a simple pressure downward. This makes the packing and shipping easier and less expensive.
