I was happily exploring one of the magnificent kingdoms in Super Mario Odyssey when, bam, I hear the music of my people:

This gamelan and suling background song with its odd time signature sounds quite soothing to me, perhaps because of regional familiarity. I wonder what it sounds like for those unfamiliar with this type of music.


One thought on “Forgotten Isle

  1. Hi, playing Super Mario Odyssey this evening, December 8th, 2018, and I just landed on the Forgotten Isle. The music reminded me of Gamelan, which I heard in Jakarta. I had to search it, and came across this blog post. Yup, totally reminds me of Gamelan, Jakarta, and funny enough… Ojeks!
