Indonesia: Gamelan Music of Bali

Indonesia: Gamelan Music of Bali

Adventurer and philanthropist Larry McKenna documents his visit to the village of Banjar Tegeh in Kerobkan, Bandung, Bali in Indonesia, where Gamelan music is played by the 18-man ensemble called Seka Gong Luwang, featuring a variety of instruments, such as metallophones, xylophones, kendangs (drums), gongs, bamboo flutes; also strings are bowed and plucked to accompany a variety of voices. This traditional music affects every way of life in Bali and almost all religious rituals include a gamelan performance. This program includes the rare opportunity to observe the cremation of a king, Tjkorde Rai Batubulan. All royalties are donated to Mr. McKenna's non-profit organization, Save Our Leatherbacks Operation. Produced by Larry McKenna. 2013 JSCA 54 min.
