BEMAC was thrilled to start our Music Industry Training and Development project as part of our ENGAGE programme last Monday 30 July. We had 19 very talented and enthusiastic participants arrive representing a total of thirteen different cultures. There is a wonderful mix of traditional and contemporary artists and it will be very interesting to see how their skills with morph in the next few weeks.
Tomorrow, Saturday 4 August, we are delighted to have Made Denis, Efiq Zulfiqar and the Gold Coast Balinese Gamelan Group perform as part of Planet at the Powerhouse. They are a Planet favourite and sure to be a unique and beautiful interpretation of the mystical and magical sounds of Indonesia. Planet will co-incide with the Pasar Rakyat festival also held at the Powerhouse, which will have lots of fresh delicious Indonesian food available, traditional workshops and local performances. This will kick off at 4pm, so come along early for some tantalising food and entertainment before heading to the performance by Made and his friends on the Platform from 5pm.
