Planet: Saturday Sessions with Made Denis & Friends
04 Aug 2012 | Saturday
Do you have a taste for the exotic but can’t afford a world trip? That’s ok. We’re bringing the world to you.
August Planet will transport you to the magical sounds of our northern neighbours, Indonesia, featuring Made Denis, Efiq Zulfiqar and the Gold Coast Balinese Gamelan Group.
Traditional Gamelan is the most intricate, highly respected and significant music form of Indonesia. Known as “speed gamelan” and displaying an extraordinary level of virtuosity and skill, Balinese Gamelan is known as one of the fastest forms of music in the world – which at the same time creates a magical, spiritual vibration that resounds out to the surrounding villages – ringing out across the rice fields of Bali carrying the devotional atmosphere of Balinese Hindu-Dharma temple life. Under the direction of Balinese musician Made Denis, this will be a rare performance of gamelan and genjek with virtuoso performances
