Women in Balinese Gamelan
3:30pm – Auditorium
Join Dr. Macy and other female musicians in exploring the ethereal sounds of the Balinese gamelan, an Indonesian gong and percussion ensemble traditionally used to accompany ceremonies. Until 1980, Balinese gamelan musicians were almost exclusively male. Today, however, women's gamelans are popular and widespread. Learn about this tradition firsthand, and try your hand at playing Balinese music.
