1990 … Balinese evening soundscape

Banjar Kalah-Peliatan Corner

1990 … Evening junior gamelan practice, Yamaha and barking night dogs

Bali’s barking night dogs … 3.5 mins

Walking home from the incredible Ubud night market [ sadly no longer in existence ] — as I arrived at the Banjar Kalah Corner just past Peliatan, I heard the sounds presented here.

Continuing down the track towards the rice paddies and my losmen, a passing Yamaha set the night dogs barking … and as the bike had gone they chose me to bark at till I arrived at my losmen.

It’s said that the many dogs in Ubud and surrounding districts who sleep all day … are taken over by demons in the dark of night.
