  • about this album

    Of the many kinds of gamelan to be found on the tiny island of Bali, none evokes a more ethereal and enchanted sound world than the rare gamelan of the love god, Gamelan Semar Pegulingan. This album features the celebrated gamelan performing works derived from the old Semar Pegulingan traditions but strongly influenced stylistically by dynamic innovations of 20th-century Balinese music.
