Extract from a recording of Raja Khadijah Binte Raja Umar's ghazal perfomance of 'Gunung Bentan' at a wedding celebration. The performance was amplified through distorting loudspeakers, resulting in non-optimum audio quality.

For more information about this recording, see Chapter 8, 'Kinship among Penyegat musicians: the jiwa seni of Raja Khadijah, Tengku Fadillah, their forebears and descendants’ by Vivienne Wee, in Margaret Kartomi (ed), Performing the Arts of Indonesia: Malay Identity and Politics in the Music, Dance and Theatre of the Riau Islands, Copenhagen: Nias Press, 2019.
