The UCSB Gamelan Ensemble will perform as part of the World Music Series on Wednesday, February 28, 2018 at 12 p.m. in the UCSB Music Bowl. Gamelan is the celebrated gong orchestra of Indonesia. Led by Richard North, the UCSB Gamelan Ensemble will showcase an ancient style of gamelan from Cirebon, West Java, that ranges from calm and contemplative to exuberant and energetic, featuring dynamic drumming, lively interlocking rhythms, and exciting mask dancing. The World Music Series is co-presented by the UCSB MultiCultural Center and the Ethnomusicology Program in the Department of Music.
