Joged Bumbung: The Local Gamelan Music & Dance

The northwest Bali is known for gamelan Joged Bumbung ★★, played on about 15 bamboo instruments that produce mellow, haunting, soothing tones and vibrations that can be felt by the body as much as by the ears. Some of the bamboo instruments are so large that musicians actually sit on them and play them with large mallets. The best ensemble to watch is the Jegog Mebarung where two or more orchestras try to out-perform one another.
