about

Recorded live in Santa Barbara 8-22-21 on traditional Gamelan Prawa instruments from Cirebon, Indonesia.

————————————————————

This is the seventh album from Gamelan Sinar Surya, a group of musicians and dancers from Santa Barbara, California, USA who have dedicated themselves to the preservation and flowering of the traditional arts of Cirebon, Indonesia.

Included here are eight pieces from the repertoire of Gamelan Prawa, traditional Gamelan music found in Cirebon, Indonesia. There is also one piece from a rarely heard form of Gamelan from Malaysia known as Gamelan Melayu. The music was recorded especially for the UCSB Summer Music Festival on August 22, 2021 before a live audience.

This album is dedicated to our dear friend Ki Donn Howell: longtime member of Gamelan Sinar Surya, expert Rebab player, and founder of the UC Santa Barbara Gamelan program back in 1986. Matur kesuwun Ki Donn 🙏🏼
