Here is the last but certainly not the least interesting record in the series from Bali. Also this one was part of the wonderful contribution, all with clear photos and good rips of the audio, that we recently received at one of our Luobaniyan consulates. We are truly happy to have such a benefactor among us, that not only loves this music but also pays great attention to quality and detail and wants to share it with us! Many thanks again.

The recordings are very good and the music is magnificent.  I think this is a true hidden masterpiece. Judge for yourself!

I'm unable to extract the files. I use AlphaZip to open zip. files. No problem with other stuff. Is this an old upload thingy? I'm a massive fan of Balinese Kebyar Gamelan, having over thirty albums myself, and am hyper-disappointed not to succeed. I have downloaded and tried to extract the files twice, now: boo!
