GAMELAN DHARMA SWARA is one of the leading Balinese gamelan and dance groups in the United States and has performed at renownded NYC music venues including (le) Poisson Rouge, Symphony Space, Joe’s Pub, Roulette, and BAM, as well as cultural institutions such as MoMA and Asia Society. The group toured Bali in 2010 with an invitation to perform in the Bali Arts Festival’s popular Battle of the Bands, and most recently, a stunning performance at National Sawdust as part of Pulitzer Prize-winning composer, Du Yun's Pan-Asian Sounding Festival.
