description I can give, could not find the name of the piece while
there, was very haunting, someone indicated it might be a Bali type
music. I've searched Amazon where I copuld listen to snippets, but no
luck. Anyone maybe know of what I am trying to describe? I'd love to
get a CD of it.

When I was in Bali a few years ago, I heard a set of music such as you describe all over the place - in restaurants, taxis, hotels, etc. I finally asked what it was, and bought the album. It turned out to be Sundanese music from, I think, Java.
Anyway, it was gamelan music, and it was called Degung - Sabilulungan, and the performer was, if I read it correctly, Ujang Surana.
A different version that I just found on the web has samples, so you can check if its in the right direction - http://www.emusic.com/album/10595/10595936.html
Amazon sells this version, though they have no samples: http://www.amazon.com/Degung-Sabilulungan-Sudanese-Music-West/dp/B000003ZO5
If it is the right music, you might also be interested in a more contemporary version of the melodies recorded by a Japanese group called Jalan Jalan on their album 'Bali'.
Jalan Jalan suggests their music gets one going ;~)
Even if itt is not the right music, consider 'Bali' anyway, because it is well worth having.
You might enjoy these from the site I linked Romeo to for Lanna tracks:
Thanks Maxwell. Its hard to find much of this music to preview, and I hate to buy blind.
