American Balungan: A Senior Recital

Madi Holland ’13 wants to take you to GAMELAND!:

It’s that time! Come to my senior recital for a night of gamelan.

Four manipulations of traditional central Javanese gamelan pieces will be performed. Two will feature instrumental reassignments in the traditional framework, and the second two will be regular balungans with bonang barung (played by Madi) and guitar improvisations (played by Henry Robertson) over them.

It would mean the world to me if you could attend. Really.
