California State University, Sacramento’s department of music and the CSUS World Music Club present the sounds of Gamelan Sari Raras, a Bay Area-based Javanese orchestra. The group will accompany Javanese traditional dancers Matheus Wasi Bantolo and Olivia Retno Widyastuti. The musical event is set for 3 p.m., Sunday, March 14, in the Music Recital Hall in Capistrano Hall.

A gamelan is a large orchestra consisting of bronze gongs and similar percussion instruments. The music has roots in Indonesia and Malaysia, primarily the areas of Java and Bali. Organizer and CSUS music professor Jim Chopyak says this is a rare opportunity to experience Javanese gamelan music and dance at the University.

Tickets are $12 general admission and $6 for students and available through the CSUS ticket office at (916) 278-4323 or Tickets.com.

For more information, contact Chopyak at (916) 278-7493. Media assistance is available from CSUS public affairs at (916) 278-6156.
