Average Rating: Not Rated

Built at Tapa Karya in Denpasar, Selonding is a type of archaic gamelan orchestra that is mostly found in East Bali.

Selonding is played using a two handed technique on most instruments, and there are no drums, flutes, stringed instruments, cymbals or hanging gongs in most ensembles. Selonding is an ideal type of gamelan for teaching in schools and universities in enclosed rooms, as the sound is not as loud as large gamelan ensembles such as Gong Kebyar.

The instruments are compact and easy to ship or transport. They are also virtually indestructable with tough iron keys and solid casings. Since iron is a much more stable metal than the more common bronze that is used to make other ensembles, the tuning will not change perceptibly; thus, avoiding the cost of bringing in a tuner from Bali to retune the instruments. Contact us for price and further details.

This orchestra is made up of 8 instruments and is played by 4-6 musicians with the following instrumentation:


- Penem (8 keys)

- Petuduh (8 keys)

- Gong (4 keys)

- Kempur (4 keys)

- Nyongnyong Gede (8 keys)

- Nyongnyong Alit (8 keys)
