Balinese Gamelan Concert
Please join us for the end of term concert at Knox Presbyterian Church on Friday, November 25 at 7:30pm. Gamelan ensembles are primarily percussive instruments made of bronze and bamboo but may include drums, flutes, strings, and voice. An oral tradition taught and learned collectively, repertoire is transmitted in a group setting without the use of sheet music. Directed by Balinese artist I Dewa Made Suparta since 2014, the students experience a communal process of creating music while also learning about the culture of Bali. See a brief interview with I Dewa Made Suparta explaining the Gamelan.
