A family founded centre, our vision is to document and reconstruct rare or extinct Balinese gamelan music and dance. We achieve this through research and study, then we educate through workshops, lessons and performances.
Our study programmes have been especially designed based on our extensive overseas teaching experience and knowledge to encourage awareness about the beauty and importance of these indigenous art-forms. Studying with us supports our projects and research.
The results of our projects are audio and video recordings as well as reconstructed performances using antique instruments. Hiring our troupes supports our ongoing documentation, reconstruction and study activities.
Shouting a massive “thanks” to all our donors and supporters who made our recent family selonding gamelan and dance tour to NZ a grrreat success! Check out the video, up now on YouTube!:
We’re back into our current reconstruction project of the lost Kaliungu-style semara pagulingan piece, Lasem Gede. It’s most excellent to be working again on this with ‘Grandpa Gun’ and our team of young musicians. Watch this space for the performance date in Bali – it won’t be long! If anyone’s coming to Bali and would like to attend our reconstruction sessions, email us on info’at’balimusicanddance.com and we’ll let you know the schedule. Attendance is by donation – thanks for your support!
