    Research

    Mekar Bhuana co-founder Vaughan  Hatch is currently collecting data on semar pegulingan, pelegongan and bebarongan gamelan across Bali. He has been working on this project since 1997.

    The research also involves sourcing old recordings of these ensembles. On numerous occasions old recordings have led to reconstruction of extinct repertoire. Please contact Mekar Bhuana if you know of any recordings that may be of use to the Balinese people.
