Gamelan (traditional Indonesian music and instruments) incorporates an ensemble of “hammered” metal percussion, drums, strings, bamboo flutes, and vocals, resulting in a beautiful collective sound. In Java, gamelan music is not only played at concert events but is also used to accompany theater and dance performances, as well as celebrations of births, coming of age, weddings, harvest rituals and other auspicious functions. This program features two traditional dances.
