A combined ensemble concert celebrating music from Bali and Japan. The UMD Gamelan Saraswati Ensemble presents traditional Balinese gamelan music that showcases complex interlocking rhythms often performed in tandem with the delicate motions and multifaceted expressions of Balinese dance. The UMD Japanese Koto Ensemble features music played on the koto, a traditional Japanese 13-string instrument. Koto music reflects the quiet beauty, simplicity and harmonizing effect of Japanese nature.
