Art, music, and culture lovers unite!

We are sitting down with Gamelan Tunas Mekar to chat about Balinese music and the upcoming ambassadorial trip to play at the Bali Arts Festival in June.

After the talk and Q&A with the audience, Gamelan Tunas Mekar will present the Gamelan Angklung set they will be playing around the island this summer.

Suggested minimum donation is $10.

This event is also a fundraiser for Gamelan Tunas Mekar because as any traveling musician will tell you…being on the road is expensive! All ticket sales & donations will go directly to pay group expenses for the trip to Bali.

Gamelan Tunas Mekar is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, donations are 100% tax deductible.
