Album Notes
Sekaa Angklung Gita Kencana, like many other angklung orchestras in Bali, has a primary responsibility to accompany Bali-Hindu ceremonies with its sweet and uplifting sound. But this ensemble of 23 musicians has distinguished itself in other realms as well. Its highly developed instrumental sound, repertoire, and playing skills have brought it many civic honors, including first prize in the island-wide gamelan competitions of the Bali Arts Festival. This 1992 recording focuses on the group’s kelentengan (traditional angklung) repertoire.

Recorded August 9, 1992 at the bale banjar of Beluran.
CD cover art by I Made Berata of Peliatan, Bali.
Recording, mastering, and booklet text by Wayne Vitale.
