Focus: Gamelan Music of Indonesia, Third Edition, introduces the emblematic music of Southeast Asia's largest country, as sound and as cultural phenomenon, highlighting the significant role gamelan music plays in the national culture while teaching of Indonesian values and modern-day life. Despite Indonesia's great diversity-a melting pot of indigenous, Hindu, Buddhist, Islamic, Portuguese, Dutch, British, and modern global influences-a forged national identity is at its core. This volume explores that identity, understanding present-day Javanese, Balinese, Cirebonese, and Sundanese gamelan music through ethnic, social, cultural, and global perspectives.

New to the third edition:

Updated content throughout to reflect current Indonesian history and geography, as well as revivals of gamelan ensembles by the Cirebonese courtsModern examples of Indonesian musics, along with new uses of gamelan and other traditional musicsAn examination of school gamelan and ISBI as a center of innovationExpanded discussion on dangdut and its current status in Indonesia, along with Islam's effect on dangdutListening examples now posted as online eResources
