Gamelan “Lebdo Budoyo”
Recital Hall, Ann E. Pitzer Center

The word gamelan is used in a similar way to our word orchestra. It refers to the Indonesian gong-chime ensembles of Java, Bali, and Sunda. This concert features music from the Central Javanese repertoire, collectively called karawitan, that has developed over centuries in the royal courts of Surakarta and Yogyakarta. Karawitan is still a living tradition in Java, modified and transformed by those who play it. 

Free, no tickets necessary (a Shinkoskey Noon Concert)
