The exhilarating splendor of Çudamani returns to UCLA Live with its newest innovation, Bamboo to Bronze. The 26-member music and dance ensemble from Bali, Indonesia harnesses movement, music and spectacle 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, dynamic and technically dazzling sound of the brilliant seven-toned gamelan Semarandana. The simple beauty of bamboo and the glorious sheen of bronze continue to coexist in the increasingly complex and sophisticated culture of Bali. UCLA Live at Royce Hall, 340 Royce Drive, Westwood.
