Gamelan Sekar Petak

Gamelan Sekar Petak

Wednesday 25 May 2016 at 7.30PM
Sir Jack Lyons Concert Hall

The gamelan (a collection of tuned Javanese percussion instruments and gongs) is joined by Humber Taiko and the University’s samba band for exciting Japanese-Javanese collaborations, Yorkshire style.  Pupils from Tang Hall SMART will also showcase their recent work with the Taiko group.  Ritual music and faraway sounds feature a sago fertility ritual from New Guinea with dancers, flutes and gamelan.  A truly colourful evening, dedicated to the memory of Tentrem Sarawanto who made Gamelan Sekar Petak in Java in 1981.

Tickets: £8; concessions £6; students £3
