Traditional Gamelan Instruments
Traditional Gamelan Instruments
Host: Syam Gadde
Let's take an audio fieldtrip to Indonesia. Although the music is gamelan, an ancient traditional music of Indonesia, we will be hearing it performed in southeastern USA. Gamelan Nyai Saraswati has been in North Carolina since 2000.A gamelan is a musical ensemble from Indonesia which features a variety of instruments, such as metallophones, xylophones, drums and gongs; bamboo flutes, bowed and plucked strings. The term gamelan refers more to the set of instruments than to the players of those instruments. A gamelan is a set of instruments as a distinct entity, built and tuned to stay together. Instruments from different
gamelan are generally not interchangeable.Information from official website: Gamelan Nyai Saraswati Performing Music of Central Java November 13, 2005, 4:00 PM Person Recital Hall University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with guest artist Midiyanto S.
