A few days later, I went to shopping to Denpasar, the capital of Bali province. While I was looking around in Matahari department store, a CD/DVD set, named "Tranquility in Bali" caught my attention. The CD features Balinese music mixed with natural sounds. The DVD has the same music tracks on the background and explores the nature of Bali. Now and then I play the CD or DVD and yes it's tranquilizing indeed. Highly recommended after a long and busy day.
My adventure with Indonesian U Mild cigarettes? That's another story...
Here's a fantastic example of Gamelan music & dance by Çudamani company. Enjoy!
