Gamelan Dewi Malam at the Galactic Center
Gamelan Dewi Malam returns to the Galactic Center for a very special evening of Balinese gamelan music. Coming from the traditions of the island of Bali, Balinese gamelan is steeped in ritual and symbolism, from the offerings of holy water and incense at every performance to the duality of interlocking parts that characterize gamelan music, and the gongs that symbolize death and rebirth. The Balinese consider the instruments sacred and feel that they exude a power of their own even resting on stage before a performance. Balinese gamelan has a huge range of styles, from complex and delicate "sitting pieces" to loud, fiery dance accompaniment.

Gamelan Dewi Malam, Gamelan of the Queen of the Night, is based right here in Tucson. The group plays the traditional bronze 4-tone angklung orchestra often used in Balinese temple music and for important life ceremonies, as well as the processional beleganjur instruments used for ceremonial processions. The performance includes a range of pieces illustrating several different styles of Balinese gamelan, and a discussion of cultural and spiritual background behind the music.

Please note that incense will be burning during the performance.
