The CWM Summer Music Series: Seaport Village, 2015
Enjoy a free summer concert of Balinese metallophone music in beautiful Seaport Village! The Gendér Quartet, featuring I Putu Hiranmayena and Alex Khalil, will delight your ears with the music of the famous Balinese shadow puppet theater.
A shadow puppet performance is accompanied by gendér wayang music—in which a quartet of musicians plays on ten-keyed metallophones in a complex interlocking style. The gender wayang repertoire is wide ranging in mood and texture in reflection of the dramatic variety of the play; the musicians must respond instantaneously to the many changes in dance movement, voice, and dramatic development as the story unfolds.
Admission is free, so bring friends and family!
When you arrive at Seaport Village, stroll to the East Plaza Gazebo.
Financial support is provided by the City of San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture.
