This chapter confronts issues of debate on music with regard to two of Indonesia's most prominent performing arts: the Javanese gamelan and wayang kulit shadow play. It critiques the histories of Islam and music, traces the gradual development of Islam within Javanese performing arts, and analyzes the evolving 20th-century positions on the arts of the two largest Islamic organizations: Muhammadiyah and Nahdlatul Ulama. The chapter reveals the strategies for negotiating aesthetics and philosophies of Hinduism and Sufism, and for establishing boundaries and sometimes rationalizing Indonesian expressive arts in postcolonial times.

Keywords:   Indonesia, music, Javanese performing arts, gamelan, wayang kulit, shadow play, Islam, Muhammadiyah, Nahdlatul Ulama
