Album Notes
Dharma Kanti is a music and dance ensemble from the small hamlet (banjar) of Beluangan in the village of Perean Kangin, in Bali’s western-central district of Tabanan. The musicians perform the energetic music that accompanies tari joged, a dance of flirtation known throughout Indonesia. Their set of instruments, one of more than twenty distinct ensemble types in Bali, is called gamelan joged or joged bumbung. Its rich sonority combines the warm timbre of bamboo marimbas and flutes with the brighter sounds of drums and bronze instruments. When this recording was made in late 1991, the group consisted of 17 musicians and seven dancers. Their music was recorded in the Pura Merta Sari, the small temple in the middle of Beluangan to which they have a close connection.
