I discovered gamelan music via a brief bio. of Claude Debussy. He heard a gamelan at the 1889 Paris Exposition, and the experience changed his music forever.

Today, I'm featuring Balinese composer/drummer Wayan Lotring and his ensemble, performing Gambangan. It's from an Ocora set titled Hommage à Wayan Lotring - hard to find, but well worth hunting down.

This is a classic, no discussion! The whole thing has been posted several times in the blogosphere, just recently at the SFRP forum.

I'd recommend it to every listener with open ears - absolutely magnificent!

Classic: no question. I used to have this set, but it's long gone, alas.
