The Wall Street Journal has described body music as “like visiting an anatomical carnival, where hands, feet, fingers, bellies, rumps, and mouths engage in an endless musical ballet.” Stompin’ Meets Kecak
The only instrument used in Body Music is the human body. Body music includes clapping, snapping, stepping, and many kinds of vocalizing. The different styles of body music from around the world reveal other times and other cultures—holding memories, cultural legacies, wisdom in rhythm – all "embodied" in "the body." From the tundra to the tropics, people apparently can’t resist the urge to snap, clap, step, holler, and sing artful music. The universal resonator—our bodies—and its myriad global sounds ignite audiences with music you can see, dance you can hear. It’s the oldest music on the planet existing in a state of perpetual renewal that makes each performance brand new.
Khalid “Greens” Freeman, currently on tour with Michael Jackson; the Immortal World Tour by Cirque Du Soleil, is coming to Bali for a single-night performance to help raise funds for Rotary Club Bali Ubud Sunset Health and Education Projects.
Freeman will perform and reunite in Bali with Sanggar Çudamani—arguably Bali’s most innovative musical grouping.
Both Freeman and Cudamani performed in the 2013 International Body Music Festival at the San Francisco Jazz Center, wowing the audiences with their body rhythms and vocals.
Duncan McKee and Kevin Briggs will also be entertaining for the fund-raising evening.
Duncan is a Scottish-born jazz pianist, composer and educator. He has performed at over 2,000 concerts, festivals and jazz clubs and collaborates with musicians and artists from all around the world.
Kevin Briggs is a well-respected musician on the international music scene. He has performed and recorded with many artists from the R&B, soul, funk, rock, blues, new country and pop genres. His style is an amalgamation of passion and flawless technique.
Enjoy an amazing and unusual evening, while knowing you are helping school youngsters and bringing clean water to hundreds of Balinese.
