Join us for a night of Indonesian music and dance!
Raga Kusuma plays traditional and contemporary gamelan (percussion orchestra) music from the Indonesian island of Bali. Founded in 2007, the group has toured Bali, collaborated with numerous Balinese master artists, and performed extensively in the United States. For their performance at the Henrico Theater they will be joined by Balinese dancers from the Indonesian embassy.
Rumput plays a style of Indonesian street music called keroncong which they blend with old time Appalachian music. They use shadow theater and a style of scrolling artwork called a cranky to accompany their music.
