This is a RARE opportunity to see the group in a public performance and to get a glimpse of why Çudamani is so unique. The group does not do regular tourist shows (so this is IT for 2017). A breath-taking finale for Çudamani’s festival, an evening packed with Bali’s most dramatic pieces performed by some of the island’s most sought after performers. Çudamani is known for its highly innovative work and this evening will be an opportunity to see the world premiere of its newest creative instrumental piece.
