7-10pm performances by:

THE LAKOTA TRIBE FROM STANDING ROCK INDIAN RESERVATION, SOUTH DAKOTA, USA

The Lakota people are part of the group of Sioux tribes, the indigenous people of North America. Music plays a powerful role in Native American life as it is used for ceremonial purposes, expression and healing. Many Lakota people are sadly currently involved in the ongoing Dakota Access Pipeline protests against the US government at Standing Rock Indian Reservation.


THE DAYAK PEOPLE FROM KALIMANTAN, INDONESIA

Dayak are the native people of central Borneo. Dayaks culture is shared through folk music and singing usually accompanying dances with a Sape – a traditional string instrument made of Adau and Kita wood. 


I WAYAN SUDIRANA FROM BALI

Pak Wayan is one of Bali’s most well known composers and music teachers and has taught and performed across Bali and internationally. Pak Wayan plays the traditional Indonesian instrument, the gamelan which is played in a fluid, interpretative style where the melody is improvised to suit accompanying musicians and dancers.

Join us on Thursday May 18th, tickets are available at the door at ARMA, Ubud.
