ABOUT THE TOUR
Gamelan Sekar Jaya (GSJ) is company of musicians and dancers from the SF Bay Area specializing in Balinese performing arts. For more information about our organization, please visit www.gsj.org. GSJ's jegog bamboo group has been invited to play at the famed Bali Arts Festival, an annual showcase of Balinese performing arts that takes place in the city of Denpasar. In order to make this tour a reality, we need the support of our community of friends.

The gamelan jegog, comprised of giant bamboo marimbas with tubes up to eight feet long, originates in West Bali and is noted for its rhythmic energy -- Its bass tones can be heard for miles across Balinese rice fields and has been described as mother nature's subwoofer. It is also exceedingly rare: GSJ's jegog is the only one of it's kind that exists in the Western Hemisphere, and only 1 of 3 that exists outside of Indonesia.
