    Mekar Bhuana

    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.

    A student group from Singapore Polytechnic just completed a custom-designed 18-day cultural immersion study programme with us. This is the second year that they have taken this programme, which always has a CSR component. This year we suggested helping the disabled community by connecting with Puspadi Bali, a foundation based in nearby Tohpati. On December 29th they did their final performance as part of a charity event at Mekar Bhuana which included donations from the student group, generous members of the audience, as well as Mekar Bhuana.
