The exhilarating splendor of Cudamani returns to UCLA Live with its newest innovation, Bamboo to Bronze. The 26-member music and dence ensemble from Bali, Indonesia harnesses movement, music and spectable to transport audiences into the vibrant world of the treasured gamelan art form. Bamboo to Bronze highlights Balinese contemporary reality by celebrating the intimate and poetic sounds of a small village as well as the virtuosic, dynamed and technically dazzling sound of the brilliant seven-toned gamelar Semarandana. The simple beauty of bamboo and the glorious sheen of bronze continue to coexist in the increasingly complex and sophisticated culture of Bali.
