Çudamani: Gamelan and Dance of Bali

WATER - TIRTA (world premiere)

Internationally hailed as one of Indonesia’s most forward-thinking ensembles, Çudamani is acclaimed for superb artistry in the classical Balinese traditions and in vibrant original productions. Their newest work, WATER-TIRTA, rejoices in the myriad ways the Balinese celebrate, venerate, and protect the life-giving cycle of water, so central to the well-being of all living things. With layers of shimmering sound ̶ the punctuation of deep bronze gongs, the stunning interlocking percussion of the gangsa, the elaborated delicacy of voice and flute ̶ and the arresting theatricality of Balinese character-dance, Çudamani conjures a transcendent experience.
