Abstract

This summer, a group of music students, faculty, and alumni traveled to Bali, Indonesia to conduct research on the musical and cultural practices found on the island. This podcast explores beleganjur, a type of Gamelan, an Indonesian percussion ensemble, consisting of gongs, cymbals, drums, and pitched bossed pots made of bronze. This art form is a popular one on the island and several groups were featured at the Bali Arts Festival during our time there.
