Tabuh Bebarongan Sakral (BRD: 32)

Very nice album of instrumental Balinese gamelan accompaniment for the sacred Barong dance - one of Bali's most well known dances, famous for the "scene" where the witch Rangda puts a spell on the followers of the Barong, forcing them to stab themselves with their own krisses. It's all very dramatic. Also, here's a excellent and very detailed description of what it's like see to see one of the performances typically shown to tourists and big crowds.
