Jegog is a form of gamelan music indigenous to Bali, Indonesia played on instruments made of bamboo. The tradition of Jegog is centered in Jembrana, a region in Western Bali. In recent years Jegog has started to become popular in other regions of Bali with a few groups being established in central Bali to entertain tourists. International interest has been spread by tourists visiting Bali and by recordings. Jegog music is very fast, loud, rhythmic and precise. The booming sound of the Jegog carries the powerful sound and vibration of the deep jungle. The chorus - echoing effect of the giant bamboo instrument creates a unique and memorable experience for any listener. Pieces last from a few minutes to as long as thirty minutes.
