Group dynamics

This concert will be the first of what Bandem and Ziporyn expect will be many collaborations. Bandem hopes to perform even more elaborate and complex dances that demand subtle interplay between dancer and gamelan. He also looks forward to doing experimental works. “The good thing about working with the Galak Tika group is that they play two different styles: traditional and modern. The Balinese gamelan is a very flexible instrument. You can use it to play classical Balinese music and then also use it as a medium for creativity, developing a new style.”

GAMELAN GALAK TIKA + I MADE BANDEM | MIT’s Broad Institute Auditorium, 7 Cambridge Center, Cambridge | December 9 at 3 pm | 617.452.2302
