Gamelan Music Next Door

All sorts of noises come from the middle school next door here in Sanur. The sound of hundreds of kids out of class playing and talking. I'm curious to go over and meet the man whom we hear on the loudspeaker early in the morning at times. There's music now and then, drums especially on Sunday. Sometimes there's band music like in the states.
Sometimes awful pop karaoke with applauding enthusiastic responses for off key renditions. Sometimes there's terrific Kacak monkey chant or Barong practice. It's so neat they do that at school. Recently there's been a lot of the local gamelan music. They must be preparing for something. Hope they keep preparing. They're doing a pretty good job of it and it's the best.
