The seleh note or nada seleh is a concept used in Javanese gamelan music. It is the final note of a gatra, or four-beat melodic unit. The main underlying melodic structure of a gamelan piece, called the balungan, is grouped into four-beat units (called gatra).[citation needed] This typical grouping of four is similar to a great deal of Western music; however, in contrast with a bar of four beats in western classical music, the strongest beat in gamelan music falls not on the first of the four beats, but on the last. This last beat is referred to as the seleh note.
