Gamelan Sekar Jaya

After a few years, I caught up with Sarah Wilner of Gamelan Sekar Jaya, a sixty-member company of musicians and dancers, practicing traditional performing arts of Bali. We met at their studio in Berkeley, with beautiful instruments and an Overhead Projector Shadow Theatre set-up for the youth.

The previous video is of Kawit Legong: Prince Karna's Dream, a collaboration between Gamelan Sekar Jaya and ShadowLight Productions. The following video, Creatures of Balinese Mythology, was performed at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco.
