This Tuesday, November 21st, The Jazz Gallery is pleased to once again collaborate with members of the percussion group Talujon to present an evening of boundary-crossing percussion music. For this concert, the Gallery welcomes Gamelan Yowana Sari, founded and directed by Talujon member Michael Lipsey. Based at Queens College, Gamelan Yowana Sari performes both traditional and contemporary music for Balinese Gamelan, collaborating with composers of diverse backgrounds to create new work. Check out the group performing Lipsey’s own composition Tabung Asli in the video below.
At the Gallery on Tuesday, the ensemble will present a mixed program indicative of their multi-faceted approach to Gamelan music, including works by Balinese composer I Gusti Komin, Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche, and founding Bang on a Can All-Star Evan Ziporyn. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear this music in an intimate space.
