The work gets its title from the two servants named in a Javanese legend developed by King Aji Saka. Inspired by a quadriptych of the legend the work contains a four movement structure: Aji Saka’s faithful servants Dora and Sembodo were sent a message to bring the pusoko (heirloom) to Java. When Dora came to Sembodo and told him Aji Saka’s order Sembodo refused since he remembered Aji Saka previous order: no one except Aji Saka himself was allowed to take the pusoko. Dora and Sembodo each felt suspicious towards another and suspecting each other tried to steal the pusoko. So they fight each other to death.
