THE MUSIC AND DANCE OF BALI

8.30pm – SALLE DES ÉTOILES, SPORTING D’ÉTÉ

In Bali, every village has its gamelan – an ensemble which brings the community together to play, sing and dance, as though celebrating the unity of the group. The village of Sebatu is one of the most impressive. On very rare occasions, its representatives travel to perform publicly this refined and incantatory music that so fascinated Claude Debussy when he encountered it at the Exposition Universelle, in 1889.
