||Music Of Bali: Gamelan & Kecak CD (1989) |
Recorded in Bali in between May & October 1987. Originally released on Nonesuch (79204). Includes liner notes by David Lewiston.
For many musicians, Bali is still the last paradise on Earth; their music shows an unsurpassed originality and creativeness. Still today, new pieces are being composed by Balinese composers for the different existing ensembles. This CD, produced and recorded by American ethnomusicologist David Lewiston, gives us an overview of the large variety in Balinese music, of the different types of * ensembles. The first piece is the music of the opening parade of the Bali Arts Festival on June 1987 (a festival taking place in June and July of every year on the island). You hear recently created ensembles, styles, and pieces as well as older ones. Among the recent musical creations of Balinese are the kecak, a type of rhythmic vocal play with short and percussive words which are used for trance dance. This type of singing, which came to life in the 1930s, is found only in Bali and is sung exclusively by men. Quite possibly one of the best Balinese CDs available! ~ Bruno Deschênes

||Gamelan Selonding "Guna Winangun" CD |
Selonding is an archaic iron gamelan, found only in Tenganan and a few other villages of East Bali. It has a mellow, laidback sound very unlike the better-known Balinese *s. Because the * is too sacred to be played except on religious occasions, Tenganan has allowed replicas to be made for study and practice. One of those replicas is heard here. ~ Original Music
Recording information: BR. Pegerinsingan, Tenganan, Karangasem (12/02/1990).
