ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Inspired by Bali’s timeless cycles of ceremony and ritual, Çudamani’s work transports the audience from the everyday world with its virtuosic detail, emotion and energy. An exquisite synthesis of music, drama and movement, Odalan Bali captures the exhilarating splendor of the Balinese temple festival.

From the clamor of villagers working at dawn to the calm of prayer and worship, and from the meditative resonance of voice and flute to the virtuosic dances for which Bali is famous, this original evening-length work traces the life of a ceremony from the awakening of the ritual site, to purification, and finally to spiritual union. Odalan Bali speaks to the enduring strength of Balinese culture.

“… there is no doubt that the performance brought us closer to the essence of a culture than most touring or touristic performances ever can, making us question and perhaps reject the ways that non-western or pre-western traditions are commonly presented on our stages.” Los Angeles Times 2005

Considered a leading creative force in their native Bali, Çudamani is dedicated to creating new works as well as preserving classical Gamelan repertoire. The musicians of Çudamani play on a hybrid gamelan orchestra created in the 1980s. With seven tones rather than the usual five, this special gamelan allows the freedom to play in rare modes, more derived from older court and ritual gamelan (for more information visit www.cudamani.org).

Led by Artistic Director, I Dewa Putu Berata, Gamelan Çudamani launches its six-week USA tour under the auspices of the UCLA Center for Intercultural Performance. The Assistant Director of the company is Emiko Saraswati Susilo; the choreographer is I Nyoman Cerita; and the composers are I Dewa Putu Berata, I Dewa Ketut Alit, I Dewa Rai, I Made Karmawan, and Wayne Vitale.
