About Shadow Play
Enjoy a selection of music from the variety of orchestras and musical styles performed by Tunas Mekar.
Gamelan Tunas Mekar is privileged to have I Made Lasmawan in residence since 1991. Pak Lasmawan is one of the foremost contemporary Balinese composers. Kreteg Layang (Bridge Fly) was composed when Pak Lasmawan first came to the United States. It refers both to the super highways he encountered in Southern California when first arriving in the States (flying bridges), and to the airplanes that brought him from Bali to the United States, bridging the two cultures.
|Orchestra: Gong Semaradana
Composition: Liar Samas (100 Liar)
Gamelan Tunas Mekar performed this version of Liar Samas (100 Liar) on April 3, 2007 at the King Center in Denver, Colorado. Written by I Wayan Lotring, Liar Samas speaks to the incalculable wealth of art, dance and music to a culture. It's a rare opportunity to hear music like this, especially down a Broadband line, so take the chance and enjoy this wonderful rendition of Liar Samas.
