The Gamelan

The gamelan or Malay gamelan which exists today in Malaysia is basically from the courts of Riau-Lingga, Pahang and Terengganu. Although originated from the land of Java, Indonesia, the Malay gamelan has developed a distinct identity compared to the Javanese, Balinese and Sundanese gamelan from Indonesia.

Although the popularity of gamelan has declined since the introduction of pop music, gamelan is still commonly played on formal occasions and in many traditional Malaysian ceremonies, i.e Malay weddings, Royal functions, etc. For most Malaysian, gamelan is an integral part of Malaysian culture.
