Gamelan Cudamani

2018 and 2019 California Tour

Internationally hailed as Bali’s most forward thinking music and dance ensemble, Çudamani is known for their exceptional creativity and superb artistry while always holding dear the classical treasures that have made Bali so renown. Nurtured and trained in the village of Pengosekan, group members are considered among Bali’s most respected and accomplished musicians and dancers. While in great demand, nevertheless, Çudamani does not perform for tourists in Bali, rather they perform  as a spiritual offering for temples and the village communities.

Under the musical direction of Dewa Putu Berata and dance direction of Bapak Nyoman Cerita and ​Emiko Saraswati Susilo this is the 20th Anniversary tour for Çudamani.  Their 24 member ensemble weave layers of intricate sound from the deep great bronze gongs to the delicate sounds of the flute. They have prepared works that are breathtakingly virtuosic, profoundly moving, works that are both new and classic.   Gamelan Çudamani is evidence of the power of collective village integrity and the intrinsic spirituality of all their efforts.
