Degung is unique type of gamelan. Degung developed in 19th century in small courts of Bupati [Regents] who were Indonesian Rulers under the Dutch and it has become increasingly widespread among the general populace since Independence in 1945.
Nowadays it is often played at wedding receptions, or as background music.
The middle class consider it more 'up-market' because of its former aristocratic connections. At the same times, It has also become the vehicle for a certain type of Sundanese popular music.
