While the grand palaces of Central Java's traditional court cities have long functioned as centers for classical performing arts, the festive street tents under which urban dwellers gather for family and communal ceremonies foster ever-changing popular traditions of Javanese music and dance. Two highly renowned artist-scholars from the Indonesian Institute of the Arts lead the UM student gamelan ensemble in a concert that will highlight contrasts and continuities between court and popular gamelan music and Javanese dance styles.
