    Abstract: From June, 2007 until May, 2008, I lived in Bali Indonesia, conducting fieldwork in a small community (banjar), where I played with a local gamelan angklung group for Balinese Hindu cremations.

In Côte d’Ivoire, dozos have been targets of criticism by Salafi Muslims because of their ritual practices as well as objects of disdain by educated elites. Yet dozos helped the current regime…
