Gamelan Genta Kasturi
Studio Resident (2014 - 2015)
Statement of Work
Gamelan Genta Kasturi, a community Balinese Semaradana Gamelan ensemble, has existed since its creation in the spring of 2003 by Balinese master musician I Ketút Gedé Asnawa and family in partnership with the University of Missouri, Kansas City. Since Mr. Asnawa's departure for a position at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign - Center for World Music in the spring of 2006, the group has continued to retain repertoire taught to us by him, perform regularly and create/perform new work within the medium in collaboration with other musicians and choreographers.
The group's intention is to continue in this vein; keeping repertoire taught to us up to speed, learning new traditional repertoire and creating our own original work in collaboration with other musicians, dancers, and visual artists.
