Drawing its inspiration from the clove and incense-scented air of Bali, Indonesia, Gamelan X explores the sonic landscape of contemporary beleganjur gamelan to offer a wildly unique expression of both East and West. From the resonating sound of the gongs to the explosive drum beats and interlocking cymbals, Gamelan X remixes the ritual of Balinese procession with a decidedly west coast twist. The ebb and flow of the energy of performance will transport you on a journey that will take you from dancing ecstatically through moments of reflection and wonder.

Gamelan X's set will include commissioned works by Balinese composers and current band members for a world fusion of gamelan, electronics, and various hand-drums. Even if you've seen GX recently, you know that every show is different. Come see the spin they put on the set for this magical double bill with Fanfare Zambaleta and their resident Sundanese Kendang player Ed Garcia.

Fanfare Zambaleta was incubated in the Zambaleta Music and Dance School in San Francisco and has emerged as a fully-formed juggernaut of a band featuring some of the Bay Area's most exciting young players and seasoned veterans. Emulating the great Balkan brass bands of the past and present, they play Romani, Serbian, Macedonian and Greek brass band music with passion and dedication. FZ's potent musical concoction of wild improvisation, meticulous ensemble coordination,  earth-shaking low brass, thunderous drumming and jubilant vocals will move your feet and lift your soul.
