A gamelan is a musicalensemblefrom Indonesia,typically from the islands of Balior Java, featuring a variety ofinstruments such asmetallophones, drums andxylophones, gongs; bambooflutes, bowed and pluckedstrings. Vocalists may also beincluded. 13. The term gamelan refers more to the set ofinstruments than to the players of thoseinstruments. A gamelan is a set ofinstruments as a distinct entity, built andtuned to stay together instruments fromdifferent gamelan are generally notinterchangeable. 14. In Bali, the Gamelan instruments are all kept together in the balai banjar, a community meeting hall which has a large open space with a roof over top of it with several open sides. The instruments are all kept here together because they believe that all of the instruments belong to the community as a whole and no one person has ownership over an instrument. Not only is this where the instruments are stored, but this is also the practice space for the Gamelan orchestra. (sekaha). The open walls allow for the music to flow out into the community where the rest of the people can enjoy it.Rattan 5-Ball Rattles from Bali 15.
