CD 10: Semara Pegulingan, Sukawati, Gianyar, Bali
'The sweet melodies of the Semara Pagulingan were believed to be a musical aphrodisiac.
Richard recorded a Semara Pagulingan group in Celuk,Sukawati Gianyar, BALI in 2007 with his mobile Protools studio.
This is one of the few new groups in Bali reviving this music which was almost lost. Led by I Komang Mustika ( who plays
Kendang) the quality of their music is astounding. The music is slower and more melodious than other traditional gamelans,therefore, more pleasing to the untrained ear. There is a CD available of this recording in the archives.
The music played on this CD is:
2: Sinom Ladrang
3: Tabuh Gari
4: Godeg Miring
5: Langsing Tubah
6: Slisir Selendro
7: Kakang Kakang
...audio sample: Pegulingan!
