Gamelan Burat Wangi

Gamelan Burat Wangi:
A Night in Paradise

"A celestial conversation of gongs, chimes and drums that thrum like rain, descending to earth with a kind of divinely ordained syncopation..." Los Angeles Times

The premier Balinese music and dance ensemble in Los Angeles, Gamelan Burat Wangi (“Fragrant Offering”) presents a selection of new works for gong kebyar -- the most virtuosic and expressive iteration of Balinese orchestras. In its formally elegant fusion of ancient traditions and contemporary sensibilities, the program also incorporates elements of tap dancing and kecak monkey chant. Performing under the direction of I Nyoman Wenten and Nanik Wenten, the ensemble features guest artists Swapan Chaudhuri, Bob Carroll, I Dewa Putu Berata, I Made Lasmawan. I Wayan Susila and I Komang Astita.

Funded in part by a grant from the Consulate General of the Republic of Indonesia, Los Angeles.
