<BR>Dance performances are daily events in Bali and Yogyakarta. The main instrumental ensembles known as gamelan are especially predominant in Balinese music.
<BR>The Gamelan is the native orchestra & is used to accompany Wayang & dance performances. It is found in varying forms throughout Indonesia. Gamelan is especially popular in Java & Bali. Here, the soaring, 2 stringed rebab, wistful flutes & the tinkling gender produce a gentle sound that some find soothing & serene. On the other hand, the cymbals, drums & gongs can reach dramatic & forceful crescendos.
