A few nights ago I attended a birthday party for my good friend Jan hosted by his wife Christyne at their beautiful villa UMAH TAMPIH here in Ubud. They had guests visiting from the USA so presented a performance of Balinese gamelan and dance by the group GUNUNG JATI from the village of Teges. [Above: group members waiting to perform] This group does a wonderful job of preserving Balinese traditional culture especially the dance performaces which are taught to the young. Their gamelan is already well known and has toured abroad.
