Music from Bali

About Us

Our Story

image42

 Gamelan Dewi Malam - the Gamelan of the Queen of the Night - is a community Balinese gamelan orchestra based in Tucson, Arizona. We play both sitting gamelan angklung and processional gamelan beleganjur.  The group is named after the beautiful night-blooming Queen of the Night cactus that is native to Tucson and magically blooms only one night each year.  

What Inspires Us

Inspired by the beautiful and magical music and culture of Bali, we perform music faithful to the traditions of gamelan as seen and heard in Bali. Our instruments are traditional Balinese angklung and belaganjur instruments brought from Bali.

Our Influences

Playing traditional Balinese music taught by Balinese masters including I Nyoman Sumandhi, I Wayan Suweca, I Nyoman Wenten, I Wayan Rai, and I Nyoman Sedana, and with offerings of flowers, incense and holy water, we bring the magic of Bali to every performance.
