Some more footage from the 1997 Bali Arts Festival in Denpasar Indonesia. It's interesting to me hearing the difference in tunings between this group and the other ensemble clip I posted.

I'm sorry I don't know the name of this very talented all female ensemble. They were terrific.

Here is a desricption of the gong kebyar style from wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamelan_...

Gamelan gong kebyar is a modern style or genre of Balinese gamelan music. Kebyar means "the process of flowering", and refers to the explosive changes in tempo and dynamics characteristic of the style. It is the most popular form of gamelan in Bali, and its best known musical export.

Gong kebyar music is based on a five-tone scale called pelog selisir (tones 1, 2, 3, 5, and 6 of the 7-tone pelog scale), and is characterized by brilliant sounds, syncopations, sudden and gradual changes in sound colour, dynamics, tempo and articulation, and complex, complementary interlocking melodic and rhythmic patterns called kotekan.
