Wayang Babad Preview Video

New CD release!

This blog has been set up to announce the release of a new CD of Balinese music by the celebrated composer, I Made Subandi.

This CD features the first ever release of music for seven-tone gender wayang, combining the virtuosity of music for Balinese shadow plays with the sweet, evocative tones of Balinese pelegongan music.

I Made Subandi is one of Bali's most prolific and celebrated composers of traditional and experimental music. Subandi regularly teaches and performs all over the world. In Bali, he is a teacher and composer at the Sekolah Menengah Karawitan Indonesia (SMKI) in addition to running his own music and dance center for local members of the community. His music is highly sought after at Bali's annual arts Festival competition and has won several prestigious awards. While steeped in the idioms of Balinese traditional music, Subandi's work reaches across cultural lines to incorporate a broad spectrum of musical influences including the musics of Java, India, South America, and the European Avant-Garde. His music can be found on the Bali Records, Porter Records, labels as well as on his own indepedent label, Ceraken Records.

This CD is currently available for sale at, which gives artists 100 percent of all royalties from sales. This is a completely independent project released through Subandi's own record label Ceraken Records.

Within the next week or so, we will be offering the CD for sale through and hopefully be offering more digital download options through amazon, itunes and more in the future.

In the coming weeks, I'll be posting updates about the CD as well as uploading photos, giving you all a look into the rehearsal and recording process, so you can see we how we put it all together.
