Lengker

November 6, 2012

Lengker is a classic piece that we began learning at the beginning of the semester.It was originally composed for Gamelan Semar Pegulingan, an older ensemble used to play music in the bedchamber of Balinese royalty. Here is a link to a video of New York City’s Gamelan Dharma Swara performing the piece. There are variations from our version in theirs, which makes it really interesting to hear!
