These Malaysian Gongs are traditionally played in a whole Gamelan orchestra, an ensemble of metallophones, drums, and gongs played in layered rhythms. Many instruments play at the same time with different patterns and tones. No instrument overpowers another. The goal is to hold steady and for all to play their part in balance. These gongs are part of that family. We are happy to welcome them to our gong family and know that as you add them to your collection, they will do their part to hold the balance.
