A House in Bali (1).

A House in Bali is a book by Canadian composer Colin McPhee. He describes life on the island where he lived from 1931 to 1938. The traditional gamelan music he was exposed to on Bali continued to inspire him for the rest of his life. Gamelan was also a source of inspiration for many other composers.
