I made this tribute to Lotring on the 30th of August, 2010. [PdR] The video contains segments of wonderful and unique footage – from a 20-minute documentary published onhttp://www.youtube.com/user/jackusful by ‘Jacques’ – of legendary Balinese musician I Wayan Lotring (1898-1983) dancing and playing in 1972. I rearranged the footage a bit and combined it with a segment of Lotring’s composition ‘Liar Samas’, played by himself and his orchestra in 1972. You can find the complete recording on a marvellous 2cd-album, released by Ocora, titled ‘Hommage a Wayan Lotring’, an album I highly recommend, a very worthwhile buy if you like gamelan music from Bali.


In the 1920’s and 1930’s Lotring was an absolute sensation on Bali, revolutionising musical form of gamelan pieces on kebyar, pelegongan and gender wayang, and in so doing paving the way for others on Bali to take gamelan into new directions.

I would expect Canadian composer Colin McPhee to have filmed him in the 1930’s but haven’t seen that footage (only a few photographs of Lotring by McPhee). In his book ‘A House in Bali’ McPhee meets Lotring and even devotes a chapter to him. A nice read that brings you in the midst of musical history on Bali.
