Angklung Kebyar: Gambang Suling (Aneka 261)

Nice tape of the seldomheardofftheisland Balinese gamelan angklung kebyar. For some info on angklung in Bali has a brief but very nice description here, with some cool songs to check out as well. This tape is just one example of many showing how the kebyar style has inspired all kinds of ensembles outside of the gamelan gong family to shake things up over the years. Cool little obsessive doodle as part the cassette artwork.
