I Nyoman Windha and Gusti Agung Ayu Warsiki are two of Bali’s most legendary artists – at this concert they will be performing with University of Michigan’s Gamelan Kyai Telaga Madu and Gamelan Madu Biru. As a composer, Windha’s groundbreaking works like “Puspanjali,” “Cendrawasih,” and “Jagra Parwata” are known for their refined melodies and have become standard repertoire for gamelan ensembles in Indonesia and internationally. The pair have performed and taught throughout the world and are regularly featured at the yearly Bali Arts Festival.

The concert will be preceded by a lecture from I Nyoman Windha at 7:15pm, as part of the Virginia Martin Howard Lecture Series.

Comprising of seventy-five gongs, percussion and other instruments, the U-M gamelan, named Kyai Telaga Madu (Venerable Lake of Honey), is part of the Stearns Collection of Musical Instruments. The U-M Gamelan Ensemble offers members the opportunity to explore new music composed for gamelan and helps train an important generation of scholars in Southeast Asian music.

Gamelan performances bring the music, dance and puppetry of Central Java to the stage in Ann Arbor, often featuring eminent Javanese artists-in-residence. The gamelan program is part of U-M’s Center for Southeast Asian Studies at LSA.
