What Makes It Great? with Rob Kapilow - Gamelan Kusuma Laras - Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts
Columbus Ave. btw. 62nd & 65th Sts. - 212-875-5000
Description: For hundreds of years, the entrancing, meditative sound of the gamelan—a kind of orchestra built around tuned percussion instruments like xylophones and gongs—filled the Islamic courts of Java. Rob Kapilow interprets these sounds for the Western ear with the help of New York's own Gamelan Kusuma Laras.
