UW Balinese Gamelan Ensemble

Friday, November 25, 2016 7:30 pm - 7:30 pm EST (GMT -05:00)

On the island of Bali, Indonesia there is a plethora of musical ensembles called gamelan, the local term for a set of instruments made primarily of bronze or bamboo. The UWaterloo Department of Music at Conrad Grebel University College is home to a gamelan semara dana consisting of bronze gongs and metallophones, drums, and bamboo flutes. 

Over the fall term, students and community members of the UWaterloo Gamelan and Grebel Community Gamelan dedicated themselves to learning and committing to memory melodies and rhythms of Balinese gamelan music. Join us in this unique opportunity to be immersed in the shimmering sounds of Bali.
