Ngudi Raras: An Evening of Gamelan Music

Master musicians from Central Java perform an evening of gamelan music. Spontaneous performance practice (klenèngan bébas) will guide the night as the group decides what pieces to play during the performance, ensuring a lively energy. Melodies abound in gamelan and are constantly reinterpreted to give a fresh feel to each cycle of the music. The concert features the softer sounding instruments, offering a chance to hear all the exquisite melodic ornamentation up close. The atmosphere is informal, creating an organic feel to the night.
