The Kulkul Wooden Bell is a traditional instrument from Bali, Indonesia that plays a significant role in religious and cultural ceremonies.
In Bali, this instrument can be found hanging inside the top level of ornate pavilions. It is positioned so that when played, the sound can be heard over vast distances.
Various rhythms played on the Kulkul describe different events or emotions such as happiness, grief, announcement of marriage, emergency warnings or community meetings.
The Kulkul is also used to indicate the start and end of formal ceremonies.
