In Bali, outdoor ceremonies honor the balance and coexistence of people and nature. While  people of the village create flower offerings on banana leaves, the sounds of gamelan music, the traditional bronze instruments of Bali, can be heard, travelling over miles of rice paddies. In this outdoor performance, Chicago Balinese Gamelan celebrates the Balinese values of recognizing and revering nature and Mother Earth.

Sponsored by the Chicago Park District's Night Out in the Parks program. Performance is free and open to families of all ages.
