Drawing its inspiration from the clove and incense scented air of Bali, Indonesia, Gamelan X explores the sonic landscape of contemporary beleganjur gamelan to offer a wildly unique expression of both East and West. From the resonating sound of the gongs to the explosive drum beats and interlocking cymbals, Gamelan X remixes the ritual of a Balinese procession with a decidedly west coast twist. The ebb and flow of the energy of a performance will transport you on a journey that will take you from dancing ecstatically, through moments of reflection and wonder.

 

Gamelan X has had many different sounds over the years from traditional to extreme fusion. This ensures that you will never see the same Gamelan X show twice. Each performance is uniquely customized to the audience and venue. We currently have 3 sets that we tour with: GX Marches, GX Dances, GX Chants

“Known for their phenomenally ecstatic and engaging live performances, Gamelan X is an ensemble of gifted American performers deeply inspired by the musical traditions of Indonesia, and yet too wanderlusty to confine themselves to any one genre.” ¬† ¬†–¬†Amazon Editorial Review
