The roots of Aceh's history reach out through SE Asia to India, China, and the Middle East, bringing in a variety of cultural flavourings into its "winnowing basket". These diverse influences, culled from trade ventures, foreign battles, and religious missions, have through time, been sifted carefully and blended into the art and traditions of the indigenous peoples. This book focuses on the history of Aceh, its diverse heritage, and the artistic forms of expression of its people.
