Track 2: Sekar Jagat

Composed by: I Nyoman Windha (1993)

This track is a welcoming dance, choreographed by Ni Luh Swasthi Wijaya Bandem in 1993, with movements derived from Rejang, a dance traditionally performed by women to welcome the gods to a temple ceremony. The music is based on music for the gamelan selonding. 

Sekar Jagat means 'flower of the world'.
