On December 15, 2016, Starline presents the second iteration of a joint performance featuring the loudest, most energetic percussion ensembles in the Bay Area. Originating in the bamboo forests of western Bali, jegog is a rare form of traditional Balinese music that features gigantic bamboo xylophones. Japanese taiko is the dance/martial arts of drumming, combining powerful rhythms with athletic choreography. 
 

Gamelan Sekar Jaya and Jiten Daiko's first joint performance was at the Starline in February of 2016. Since then we've performed together across the Bay Area, developed original collaborative material, and started to explore the possibilities of this cross-genre, cross-equator, cross-instrument connection. At Taiko/Jegog we'll present a mix of traditional, contemporary, and premiere works that speak to the burgeoning relationship between these two ensembles. - - - (almost) NO REPEATS FROM LAST TIME :) - - - 

Japanese snacks by Ryoji's Bait Shop and a No English dance party mean that nowhere else on a Thursday night is half as fun as here.
