Legong Kraton Tari Kentul Jobog – Balinese gamelan is an album by Banjar Binoh, Badung that was originally released on Bali Record at an unknown year, then illegally re-released by Super Cassettes Indonesia in 2016. The genre for this is gamelan.
Gamelan is a genre of traditional music from Indonesia, its also one of my favorite world music genres. The genre has a really unique and crazy sound. The percussion sounds like a bunch of bells and metal things being hit. The melodies sound somewhat dark and the singing is awesome. The music can get rather hectic at times too. It can get rather hectic at times too. This album has both instrumental tracks and tracks with vocals. The vocals tracks are two 20+ minute tracks, and the instrumental tracks are much shorter in length. I strongly prefer gamelan with vocals because it really helps build the vibe and is audibly pleasing, but the instrumental tracks are dope too.
