Gamelan Çudamani is a 24-member music and dance ensemble from Bali that weaves layers of intricate sound from deep bronze gongs to the delicate sounds of the flute in the Indonesian gamelan tradition. The group also performs dances such as the legong - one of the island’s most revered and demanding classical dances, historically seen only by the royal family.  These talented young performers bring to life vivid tales of gods and heroes of Balinese mythology and history and explore the shifting dimensions of human emotion, nature, the spirit world, and the cosmos.
