Gus Teja World Music

Gus Teja World Music was founded by Agus Teja on April, 2008. This is an international music group based in Art Village, Ubud, Bali. Suling (Balinese flute) is used as the soul of their music, which is then combined with gamelan ensemble such as tingklik, slonding and kendang. To add modern flavour, they infuse their music with acoustic and bass guitar.
