This kecapi mandolin is one of Bali's rarest instruments. Whilst kecapi may be common in Java, there are few groups in Bali. Balinese kecapi mandolin are played in a group of 2+ people. The strings are strummed with a plectrum and chords are created by press the keys down. The instrument is normally tuned to an angklung type tuning and is often accompanied by a number of small and medium suling flutes.

You can hear this instrument in ensemble form on a recording from Tenganan called 'Gamelan from Eastern Bali' by Maharani Records.
