Scared the jeebus outta me first time i listened to Music of the Gods, all this wonderful mellow instrumental gamelan and all of the sudden... A group of people is chanting at me. LOUDLY. At me! Very jarring musical transition.
Thank you! I heard this a good thirty years ago on a program on KCET and was blown away with it. All I could recall was something about "Monkey dance",but the title was not known to me. Thanks!
