Import from Indonesia

"Sumunar," an Indonesian gamelan ensemble, played tuned bronze gongs, metallophones and drums while "Kechak," Balinese dance and drama, enchanted the Family Fun Tuesday audience at Caponi Art Park. They will give a bigger performance tomorrow, Sunday, July 24 at 6:30 pm in the "Theater in the Woods" at Caponi Art Park.

  4. Saw Kechak dance while in Bali last November. It was wonderful! Your post brought back great memories of a great visit to Bali.

  5. That group was great and the dancer was wonderful! Reminded me also of my trip to Bali several years ago!
    The photo was a challenge as they performed under a dark tent and because of the heat and humidity that day, my lens kept fogging up!

  14. Traditionally Indonesians would be pretty happy about hot weather. Those orchestras have a unique brand of music and accompany ancient epic stories etc. Julia newcastle nsw. How the comments work these days escapes me.

  15. I love the Indonesian influence. The San Franciso Asian Art Museum now has a fabulous exhibit on Bali. I hope you're going to the show today and then share with us! Suzanne at WS
