Program Notes

Jalan-jalan was inspired by the music of Bali, Indonesia, based upon its unique melodies, modes and rhythms. As part of the independent archipelago Ryukyu, Okinawa (southernmost Japan) had an active exchange with Bali that included cultural and musical influences.

"Jalan-jalan" means "walkabout" or "walking journey" in Indonesian. It describes a walk in the so-called Isle of the Gods, encountering Bali's beautiful scenery and daily life. Its four themes include "Dawn," "Morning Market," "Beach in Early Afternoon" and "Kecak Dance" (a form of Balinese dance and music drama, performed primarily by men) in Torchlight.

The work was premiered in 2000 by the renowned Hamamatsu Symphonic Band, and has been popular fare in Japan since.
