Transport yourself to the temples of Bali and courts of Java with this unique concert experience, featuring six international dancers from Indonesia and the New Zealand School of Music's two unique 'gong orchestras'.

The gamelan orchestra is made up of metal percussion instruments, including xylophones, drums, and gongs. Their unique sound is unlike anything else – the music of Javanese ensembles has been described as ‘flowing water’ or ‘blossoming flowers’ and the style of Balinese ensembles is characterised by unpredictable rhythms and wild dynamic contrasts.

The New Zealand School of Music in Wellington houses ensembles from both Bali and Java, and both will perform at this concert.

To perfect the classical dance movements of Bali and Java, performers train from early childhood. Witness the dancers’ intricate gestures as they perform alongside the captivating sounds of the gamelan in this free concert in the Hub at Victoria University.

All welcome – no bookings necessary.
