Lucy Duran is joined by Reda El Mawy of the BBC World Service's Arabic Service for a Roundup of the latest world music releases. Plus Maria Bakkalapulo investigates Bali’s Folk music traditions.

The gamelan traditions of the court and temples of Bali are well known throughout the world. But these have always existed side by side with the folk traditions of Bali, which are rarely heard outside the island. These are based on the ancient animist faiths of the area, where ceremonies to ward of evil spirits are performed to the sound of the gamelan. Maria Bakkalapulo visits a funeral and other spirit ceremonies to encounter this hidden music of Bali.
