Gamelan Festival at CC
On Saturday night, I attended Temu Wicara Bali: A Celebration of Balinese Performing Arts that included guest speakers, musicians and dancers from Bali, five gamelan orchestras and the Colorado College Bowed Piano Ensemble. This was a special performance as it celebrated the 20th year of gamelan at CC. In addition to teaching Indonesian performing arts, CC offers an academic course on the ethnomusicology of Indonesia, as well as a summer study abroad course on the arts and culture of Bali.
Congratulations to Professors Vicki Levine and I Made Lasmawan who organized this festival and started our program in 1993!
