When composer Jason Gallaty wanted a wholly traditional Balinese score, he reached out to Balinese music group Gamelan Çudamani for their assistance since their traditional music fit his ideas. However, the group was initially thinking of turning down the offer because as traditionalists, they viewed Video Games and their music as things they were "working against". The Gamelan group eventually put their prejudices aside and warmed up to the idea however, because the game and it's themes as described by Gallaty really struck a chord with them.
"...The themes [of the game] are so beautiful and so resonant with our culture and our values and philosophy. And you know, it’s exciting to see that."
