Kembang Sunda: Indonesian Gamelan Ensemble – Free Concert Hour

February 27 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Picture of Kembang Sunda

Kembang Sunda is a San Diego-based ensemble that performs Sundanese gamelan degung music from West Java, Indonesia. Degung music developed in the royal Sundanese courts of West Java beginning in the fourteenth century. The ensemble consists primarily of tuned bronze idiophones; a large hanging gong (go’ong), large rack gongs (jengglong), medium rack gongs (bonang), a mid-range metallophone (panerus), and a high-range metallophone (peking). Other instruments include a set of tuned drums (kendang), a wooden xylophone (gambang), and a bamboo flute (suling). Degung music, like all gamelan styles, is based on a colotomic structure: music organized into cycles defined by periodic punctuation played by specific instruments. In ancient times, degung music was played in the royal courts to welcome guests, accompany dance, and aid in meditation. Today, degung music is typically heard at traditional Sundanese wedding ceremonies and other important events where an atmosphere of elegance and Sundanese cultural authenticity is desired.

Tom Griesgraber – Inventor of the Chapman Stick – Free Concert Hour

March 5 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Tom Griesgraber is one of the world’s most respected players of the Chapman Stick; an unusual instrument with six guitar strings and six bass strings that is played more like a piano.
Tom’s performances frequently stop uninitiated listeners in their tracks as the layers of guitar, bass and keyboard-like sounds coming from this one instrumentalist often seem too big to be real.

Tom tours frequently as a headliner and an opener for acts like The California Guitar Trio, Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel), Steve Morse, Andy Summers (The Police), Steve Hackett (Genesis), Tim Reynolds (Dave Matthews Band), Al Dimeola, Stanley Jordan, Paul Stanley and Paula Cole. He has performed four times for Grammy events and his albums have been selected among the yearly top recordings on the national radio show “Echoes,” and as editor’s picks in Guitar Player and Acoustic Guitar magazines
