This event brings together for the first time the Bay Area’s four internationally known gamelan orchestras, as well as two groups that fuse Indonesian and American culture through music and dance. The concert features traditional gamelan music and dance representing Bali, Java and West Java, as well as new work by today’s generation of artists from both sides of the world. There will also be free workshops and performances, and Indonesian Arts & Crafts vendors in the lobby beginning at 2:00 pm. 

 

Each of the traditional groups at this event was founded by an extraordinary Indonesian artist, and each has been sustained by the commitment of its group members along with the support of their local and global communities. Many of today’s performers have spent years or decades studying, performing, and passing these arts on to new generations, and forming new bonds and creating new communities in the process. This event is a part of the Indonesian-American Cross Cultural Music Project, which brings these communities together in celebration of art, music and culture.

 

Program 1 at 3PM features members of Gamelan Sari Raras in a small Gamelan Gadhon ensemble performing vocal music of Central Java. Gadung Kasturi will present traditional Balinese dance, and will also feature Lestari Indonesia dance group performing classical Javanese dance with music arranged for Balinese gamelan by Midiyanto.

 

Both programs will feature works by the cross-cultural bands Gamelan X and Purnamasari. The event features Indonesian Arts & Crafts vendors and free workshops and performances in the lobby starting at 2:00PM
