Within the whole Indonesian music culture, Balinese gamelan has a special position. On the one hand it is the most dynamic music culture, but on the other hand, this has also led to a kind of isolation or even misuse of that cultural reality. Certain aspects of Indonesian cultural policy have had a significant influence on Bali, positively and negatively.

After a short introduction about those historical backgrounds, the development after the independence and the turmoil of 1965, I will focus on contemporary tendencies, also touching some aspects of educational policy as well.
