A Javanese gamelan music show with special guest artist I.M. Harjito – and featuring five new Javanese music compositions making their American debut – will take place from 4-6 p.m. Sunday, May 1, at Nusantara Arts Performance Center @ St. Johns Grace Episcopal, 51 Colonial Circle, Buffalo.
Organizers said, “Nusantara Arts welcomes you to explore with us an exciting series of new compositions, performed for the very first time outside of Indonesia. During COVID, Nusantara Arts commissioned 12 new major works by seasoned Javanese masters as well as newcomers. The compositions are an interesting array of tunes that range from the traditional to contemporary. We will perform five of these new compositions, including Sinugraha/Suka Sokur by world renowned gamelan master I.M Harjito, who will be joining Nusantara Arts for the performance.”
