Performers include Balawan, a singer/songwriter considered Indonesia’s preeminent guitarist, and founder of the Batuan Ethnic Fusion band that combines traditional Balinese music with jazz; Ade Suparman, a Java-based composer and master of the kecapi (box zither), suling (Javanese bamboo flute) and gamelan (indigenous percussion music of Indonesia); and Nurrika, a choreographer and performer of Indonesian classical and folk dances. Also featured will be Indian musician Poovalur Sriji on mridangam (wooden double-headed drum of southern India). The artists will be joined by Jamal Mohamed, director of the Meadows World Music Ensemble, and students from the ensemble.
