Indonesian Gamelan Percussion Instruments
Gamelan is a mixture of percussion and melody as entire orchestras in Indonesia are made up of percussion instruments. Gamelan xylophones are called gangsa, pictured left. Large gongs provide the background and come in two varieties for male and female tones. In the west of Bali bamboo xylophones called Rendik (pictured right), Tinklit or Jegog are played.
