Master and Pupil - Balinese Gender Duets (2011)


I Wayan Sula, master and I Dewa Gede Adi Kusuma Triananda, pupil.

Gender is a traditional Balinese and Indonesian ten brass-bar metallophone with bamboo echo chambers under the bars, an instrument which normally forms part of a larger gamelan orchestra. Gender is more rarely played as a duet of two instruments with the two players sitting face-to-face. That is the case here: these are two music lessons of master and pupil as a duet running through the same core repertoire twice, mostly sacred music for tooth-filing ceremonies.
