Gamelan Lila Muni – Music from Bali, Indonesia @ Doty Recital Hall at SUNY Geneseo
Feb 23 @ 3:00 pm

Please join the SUNY Geneseo Department of Music as it hosts Gamelan Lila Muni.
• Sunday, February 23, at 3:00 PM in the Doty Recital Hall

Gamelan at Eastman, as in Bali, is a communal effort. The music is learned through the oral/aural tradition without the use of notation, and therefore requires the players to work together closely for long periods of time. The result is a sense of group unity and pride as the audience hears the music and witnesses the collective efforts of the ensemble. The ensemble at the Eastman Community Music School, Gamelan Lila Muni (Heavenly Sound), is an ancient four-tone gamelan angklung which traditionally performs music for rituals and ceremonies.

Free and all are welcome.
