Some more rarely spotted old vinyl of gamelan. Here is a recording I have enjoyed very much. I hope you will also. It comes with a very informative eight page folder in french, penned by Louis Berthe who together with Bernard Yzerdraat also did the recordings in 1961-63. I will continue to post gamelan music to put me and you in the mood for all the South East Asian Bärenreiters that are coming so stay tuned, and don't forget to check in here now an then.

And, as always you are most welcome and I am happy to see you here! And especially, that these recordings get to live a bit longer and that the music will be allowed to pass through new ears..

heureux de retrouver le meilleur disque de musique balinaise jamais enregistré . c'est Alain Swietlik, musicologue amoureux de ce disque qui me l'a fait découvrir il y a 25 ans..
