About the Indonesian-American Cross-Cultural Concert:

The Indonesian-American Cross-Cultural Concert at Berkeley's Art House Gallery is a yearly event and part of singer songwriter Lisa Graciano's cross-cultural music project. Last year's concert was a benefit for Berkeley-based Gamelan Sekar Jaya and featured musician Made Subandi from Bali. This year will feature Javanese musician and puppet master Midiyanto leading members of the Bay Area gamelan community in a rare performance of Gadhon music, a form of gamelan from Central Java. Lisa will also present more of her new gamelan-infused songs, including a premier of the song 'Welcome' with choreography from dancer Kompiang Metri Davies and Balinese gender wayang arranged by Paul Miller. For more information, go to: http://www.lisagraciano.com/her-cross-cultural-music-project.html

About Midiyanto:

Midiyanto is a shadow puppet master (dhalang) from a family of musicians and artists in Wonogiri, Central Java. Over the last 25 years he has taught and performed extensively in Java, the United States, Singapore, New Zealand, Australia, and Canada, including 10 years in Portland, Oregon as the gamelan director at Lewis & Clark College. He has been featured in several documentary films and directed the gamelan for the CD Shadow Music of Java, recorded at the Smithsonian. He has taught and directed gamelan at UC Berkeley since 2004, after an earlier stint there from 1988 to 1992. Go to his website for more: midiyanto.net

About Lisa Graciano:
Lisa Graciano is a Balinese-born, Jakarta/Manila/Singapore-raised, Oakland based (by way of Amsterdam) singer-songwriter, guitar player and multi-instrumentalist. She serves up a musical grilled satay: a bluesy dish spiced with savory bits of reggae, folk, rock, pop, and gamelan. She is a true planetary citizen, a manifestation of western music washing up on the shores of Southeast Asia, mixing with already rich homegrown musical expressions. Her gamelan-infused group Purnamasari, which she started in the spring of 2012 with the help of her husband Paul Miller, is rooted in her cross-cultural music project and includes musicians who have been playing non-western musical instruments for a very long time. For more information, go to: lisagraciano.com

About Paul Miller:

Paul Miller spent several years in Indonesia, learning gamelan with the late Wayan Loceng and other Balinese master musicians, and specializing in Gender Wayang music.  He is a member of SF Bay Area gamelan groups Gadung Kasturi, Sari Raras, Gamelan Sekar Jaya, and Shadowlight Productions. Paul collaborates with his wife, singer songwriter Lisa Graciano, composing and arranging gamelan parts in her songs and performing in her group Purnamasari. Paul offers lessons in Balinese Gender Wayang music. Go to: paulmillergenderwayang.weebly.net

About Kompiang Metri Davies:

Kompiang is a Balinese dancer, choreographer and composer.  She has been involved in cross-cultural, cross-media collaborations including Abhinaya Dance Company's production of The Ramayana (1997) and Chitresh Das' East as Center (2003), which mixed Balinese and South Asian Indian dance, and ShadowLight Productions' Sidha Karya (1996) and In Xanadu (1997) which incorporated live dance and shadow puppetry.  She was a featured performer in the revival of the silent film, Legong: Dance of the Virgins, accompanied by dance and live music by the Club Foot Orchestra at the World Trade Center in New York City in 1999. In 2005 she created and performed the solo theater piece "Liku Liku Hidupku: the Story of my Life", an autobiographical work featured in the Asian Pacific Islander United States of Asian America Festival.
