CD Reviews

Bombastic Bamboo!
Julian Guffogg | St Leonards, East Sussex England | 09/24/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This music is played on a bamboo gamelan - instruments constructed of semi-circular sections of bamboo. They look a bit like a xylophone.
The style is generally fast (banyunas) style, with interlocking melodies, prominent drumming, and using a "gong" which consists of a long pipe which is blown - digeridoo style.
There is a peshinden (female singer) and male chorus, with many shouts and interjections of encouragement!
Its a fast ride of lively folk tunes, which is completely different to the traditional Javanese court pieces."
