What is Gamelan Tradisional Jawa

In the aesthetic context, the type of western and traditional music is a dynamic symbolic language. Generally speaking the language of music can be classified into three types of presentation

  • Karawitan Sekar Gending, a form of presentation of regional sound art that combines sekar and gending. Sekar gending has the meaning of the form of artistic sounds in the form of a song that is accompanied by gamelan.
