Growing up in Indonesia and living my entire adult life in Canada. These pieces bring a lot of memory. The pentatonic scale does give us a haunting serene melody played with the local gamelan or bamboo flute. It has been a while for me, you are probably familiar, with some of the wellknown the Sundanese songs, such as: Es Lilin and Bubuy Bulan, or the Javanese - Gambang Suling.
My appreciation to your cross-cultural interest!
