That was great! I've seen that name - Gamelan X - before but never seen or heard them perform. That some really fun fusion!

As an example of traditional Balinese gamelan, these folks - Cudamani - are imo the best balinese gamelan group in the world. This is the level that we aspire to here in Vancouver, but will never reach...
