“Gamelan Dharma Swara = The Highlight of My Festival … channeling incredible energy through their intricate melodies, clashing choral harmonies, and unpredictable rhythms. Unlike anything I’ve ever seen or heard.”

Bushwick Daily



Gamelan Dharma Swara is honored to work with leading Balinese musicians, composers, dancers, and teachers. The ensemble regularly invites a visiting artist to New York for a residency with the group. We also regularly welcome other teaching artists to participate in summer programs and workshops.
