The angklung, dancers, tingklik and genjek musicians of Gamelan Sekar Jaya will present a family friendly afternoon of Balinese music and dance.
About the ensembles:
- The light-hearted melodies of the tingklik are reminiscent of warm relaxed evenings in Bali, when these village instruments are often played in a relaxed manner by farmers or musicians who are simply enjoying a rest after a long day's work.
- The angklung's bronze instruments offer a completely different feeling, one that is sometimes perceived to be bright and sometimes melancholy. Unique arrangements of dance pieces for angklung are a special offering of the ensemble rarely seen anywhere else.
- The dance ensemble will feature some of its younger performers, so bring the kids! Some of the senior performers of the ensemble will provide a balance for the youth members and the fun-loving vocal music of 'genjek/kecak' will highlight our local Balinese artists.
There will be something for everyone in the family.
Led by Guest Music Director Bapak I Dewa Putu Berata and Guest Dance Director Emiko Saraswati Susilo, GSJ's performance at Ashkenaz draws on the Balinese traditions of family, music and dance going hand in hand. The legendary vibrant traditions of music and dance in Bali have their foundation in a culture that embraces family and the arts together. Come join us!
