"Writer and composer Colin McPhee (1900-64) brings a unique perspective to life on the fabled island of Bali. In 1929 the young Canadian-born musician chanced upon rare gramophone recordings of Balinese gamelan music which changed his life. From that moment, he lived for the day when he could set foot on the island where the clear, metallic music originated. He was able to realize his dreams and spent almost a decade there during the 1930s. Music and dance, as McPhee discovered to his delight, are second nature to the graceful Balinese, and his subsequent writings and compositions proved seminal in popularizing gamelan music in the West. Much has been written on Bali but this classic work from 1946 remains the only narrative by a Western musician."--BOOK JACKET
