- "Asmaradana", a Javanese song form reserved for themes of heroic or tragic love, originates from the courtly life and music of Central Java. Already established by the eleventh century, it endures even today as a well-loved form of expression. In this story, from the poem by Goenawan Mohamad, Damarwulan farewells his love Anjasmara as he leaves to join in battle and meet his death as various omens predict.
