At the heart of traditional Balinese gamelan music is the “kotekan,” a musical structure in which layers of individually simple patterns are played in a complex interlocking fashion, creating a vibrant tapestry of composite melodies. It is a musical structure that embodies, through sound, an ideal model of community and cooperation.
