So many albums promising a relaxing atmosphere end up falling through with blatant repitition, quirky sound effects, nature sounds that absolutely drown out the music, or an overall lack of substance. Jalan Jalan’s “Bali” is absolutely not one that falls prey to such trivial discord.

“Jalan Jalan” means “to walk” in Indonesian, and I would travel with this music anytime. “Ocean Blue” and “Water Garden” in particular give me visions of walking on sunset beaches in Bali. “Sun-set” tends to give me the feeling of walking down the stairs from a temple, high in the mountains of Japan as waterfalls cascade down around me.

A gamelan is a kind of musical ensemble of Indonesia typically featuring a variety of instruments such as metallophones, xylophones, drums, and gongs; bamboo flutes, bowed and plucked strings, and vocalists may also be included. The term refers more to the set of instruments than the players of those instruments. A gamelan as a set of instruments is a distinct entity, built and tuned to stay together — instruments from different gamelan are not interchangeable.

The word “gamelan” comes from the Javanese word “gamel”, meaning to strike or hammer, and the suffix “an”, which makes the root a collective noun.

Balinese Gamelan music is very similar to Javanese Gamelan music. The music is in cycle too, however, it is usually faster. One of the characteristic of Balinese gamelan music is that, it has a lot of sudden changes in tempo and dynamics. Like the Javanese gamelan, the instruments in Balinese gamelan includes metallophones and gongs. However, there are more metallophones than gongs in Balinese gamelan. The metal keys in Balinese metallophones are ticker than those of Javanese. These Balinese metallophones produce very bright sound. Another characteristic of Balinese Gamelan music is the used of cymbals. These cymbals create fast rattling sound that usually cannot be found in Javanese Gamelan music.
