London Swings Like a Gamelan Do!

Lila Cita, London's Balinese Gamelan to Be First UK Group to Perform at Bali Arts Festival.


(5/27/2006)

Lila Cita Gamelan and Lila Bhawa Balinese Dance Troupe have been invited to perform at the 26th Annual Bali Arts Festival to be held June 17 - July 15, 2006.

The London performers will be the first UK group to participate in the Festival and the first foreign group to play the traditional gamelan semar pegulingan at the yearly arts event. Lila Cita and Lila Bhawa are scheduled to perform at the Ksiranawa Theatre of Denpasar's Bali Arts Center at 8.00 pm on July 8th. The following week they'll perform at Geriya Olah Kreativitas Seni GEOKS, in the village of Singapadu.



For their Bali performances the group’s repertoire will consist of traditional dance pieces, including the "welcome dance" Sekar Jagat; the "Bird of Paradise Dance" Cendrawasih; the challenging virtuoso solo Kebyar Duduk; as well as some new pieces specially commissioned for the group. These new compositions include the Jayaprana, by guest artistic director, I Nengah Susila, with choreography by Lila Bhawa's Artistic Director Ni Madé Pujawati; and Bali-Sugriwa with music and choreography by I Wayan Dibia. The Bali appearance will also present the Indonesian premiere of two pieces by British composers: Nye Parry's Lila Cita and Andy Channing's Pig in the Kraton.

Looking for Sponsoring Angels

Getting 25 people from London to Bali is an expensive proposition. The group has put all fees earned in the last year into their "Bali Fund" and are applying for Arts Council and Lottery grants to help cover the costs, but even if these efforts are successful, this will cover only a small portion of the expenses. To cover the deficit the group has also been working with the Indonesian Embassy to make contacts with British businesses and corporations who have interests in Indonesia in the hope of attracting sponsorship both for this and future events.

June 10th and June 16th Performances in London

As part of their fundraising efforts, the group is giving a Gala Benefit Concert in London at the Brunei Gallery at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) on June 10 at 7.00 pm (Russell Square Tube). Tickets may be purchased in advance via the email link provided or from members of the group for a minimum donation of £6 (suggested donation £20).

Lila Cita welcomes support from all sponsors, large or small. Donations can be made via the [Lila Cita Website].

Lila Cita will be giving another London concert with the London Symphony Orchestra Community Gamelan at St. Luke's (Old Street) on June 16, at 7.30 p.m..
