  • Setelah mendengar album ini, saya bangga sekali rasanya jadi Orang Indonesia. Betapa kekayaan budaya kita (yg dalam hal ini adalah musik daerah tradisional) begitu kaya dan indah, kali ini yang diangkat adalah musik daerah timur indonesia. Setelah diolah oleh orang-orang berbakat seperti Dwiki Dharmawan mampu menjadi sajian yang sangat berkelas, kolaborasi antara alat musik tradisional seperti sasando, dan keyboard yang dikemas dalam bentuk Orkestra menjadikan Album ini sangat layak untuk diapresiasi dengan nilai yang sangat tinggi. Terus Berkarya Musisi Indonesia, dan mari ikut serta Memvoting Taman Nasional Komodo masuk kedalam 7 Keajaiban Dunia yang baru.
