Gamelan concert 13 july

Gamelan Music and Dance Concert

Enjoy the mesmerising sound of the Indonesian percussion orchestra in an evening of music and dance from the palaces and villages of Java. Presented by the Oxford Gamelan Society and featuring Balinese and Javanese dancer, Andrea Rutkowski.

The Gamelan is an Indonesian orchestra of bronze metallophones. It is a percussion ensemble made up predominantly of gongs, metallophones, and chimes, all hand-forged in bronze and mounted on exquisitely carved frames and beds with snakes, tropical plants, and other decorative embellishments.

Pete Smith, director of OGS has described Gamelan as ‘like a cross between traditional jazz and integral serialism, really! It’s largely a repertoire of traditional melodies, and these act as contours around which an ensemble of about twenty players and singers embellish in set ways.’

See Gamelan Concert – Priory Arts for further details and to book tickets.
