Gamelan Cudamani

Shimmering art from Indonesia

In most circumstances a gamelan orchestra—a glittering collection of gongs and drums—would be more than enough to watch, but pair it with dancers from the same tradition, wrapped in silk and crowned with gold, and the very air begins to shimmer. The chimes and drums clang in a sing-song rhythm over the top of the deep gong tones, while the dancers tell stories of gods and kings, their loves and their battles. See and hear it live as the 25-member Gamelan Cudamani comes to Meany Hall.
