The most celebrated gamelan ensemble outside of Bali, Gamelan Sekar Jaya returns to Yerba Buena Gardens Festival with a breathtaking mix of traditional and contemporary music and dance works. Under the direction of internationally renowned gamelan composer and performer I Dewa Putu Berata and dance master I Made Suteja, the 50-member Bay Area company presents a program showcasing three different gamelan ensembles. The intricate and sinuous melodies of gender wayang features a quartet of bronze and bamboo metallophones. The bronze gong kebyar gamelan creates thrilling interlocking melodies, while Bali’s energetic bamboo gamelan jegog creates a jubilant sound with marimbas up to 10 feet long. The program also features exciting dance works highlighting masked dance topeng performed by renowned topeng master Suteja.
