Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the development of gendhing mares in the court of Yogyakarta. Gendhing mares requires the incorporation of European brass instruments and drums and is used to accompany the exit and entrance of serimpi, one of the most refined dances in the court of Yogyakarta. Aside from the sound structure of the music, the chapter addresses the history and meaning of the genre. Three types of Western music were introduced to Indonesia by the Portuguese in the 16th century: church, secular, and military music. Slave musicians were instrumental in introducing these last two types of European music to the homes of rich European traders. Javanese-European hybrid music involving brass band instruments can be found outside the courts of central Java.
