CD 9: Sekehe Tektekan, Kerambitan, Tabanan, Bali

'Tektekan was traditionally used to chase away malevolent spirits which were responsible for bringing disaster, such as illness or drought, to a village. The performance was thought to restore balance to the village and to bring about fertility. In addition, a Tektekan ensemble may be called for the ritual cleansing of an area where a new house is to be constructed. Today, the performance may be performed in ritual as well as secular contexts.

The main instrument of the Tektekan ensemble is a type of bamboo slit drum which produces a tek sound when struck. The drummers direct the ensemble by cueing tempo and dynamic changes as well as transitions between sections. Cymbals are used to produce loud crashing sounds in interlocking rhythms. A complement of small and large gongs punctuate the rhythmic cycles. The musicians accent the performance with unison shouts.' World music
