On Sunday afternoon, June 5th, Sumunar Gamelan and Dance Ensemble had the opportunity of playing on of the Kyai Rengga Manis Everist Gamelan at the National Music Museum in Vermillion, South Dakota. The nearly packed out and appreciative audience loved the sights, sounds, and movements of music from Java, and the ensemble thoroughly enjoyed playing on these beautiful sounding instruments. The museum has an exhibition entitled “Gamelan! A Way of Life,” on view through October 25, 2022 at the Groves Gallery for Special Exhibition.
In Indonesia, the word sumunar means a glowing, brilliant light–one that is radiant and beautiful, and one that illuminates and warms the soul.
Dedicated to teaching, performing and sharing the arts and culture of Indonesia, Sumunar invites you to be a part of the luminous light.
Whether you’re enjoying a concert, taking a gamelan or dance class, or learning more about Indonesia, our goal is to share the rich sounds, stories and traditions of Indonesia with you in an open and relaxed environment. Sumunar is among the Twin Cities’ cultural treasures that can be enjoyed by all ages.
