Additional Information

The Music of Bali Ensemble features gamelan music (the generic Indonesian word for orchestra) and dance. The Balinese gamelan gong kebyar is famous for its fast tempos, abrupt changes of texture, and brilliantly costumed dancers who act out stories from the Hindu Ramayana.

The goal of the Charles Mingus Ensemble is to provide a workshop environment where students from the jazz, world, and classical disciplines can learn to successfully integrate compositional and improvisational musical traditions. The ensemble utilizes many of Charles Mingus' musical approaches, employing improvisational styles within and outside of common jazz performance practice.
