There are many traditional music in Indonesia. Such as "gamelan" from Jawanese regions, "keroncong" , "degung" from Sundanese regions, other songs from Mollucas regions, West Sumatra regions and so on.

Usually this traditional music accompanies local regional dancing. For example the Balinese dancing is accompanied by dynamic music from Bali Island. The Jawanese dancing is accompanied by slowly music from Jawa Island. So there are many kind of musical instruments of this traditional music in Indonesia. Such as guitars, pianos, "gamelan", gong, ukulele, angklung, "seruling", and so on.
If you are interested in this traditional music of Indonesia, you could follow a traditional music training in Yogyakarta (Central Jawa) on other cities. I think it will be enjoyable for you.

Happy and Enjoy It !
