The musical ensemble of Raga Garnita (Joyful Heart), delivers an experience through education & performance of the lively percussion-based music of Bali, Indonesia.
Founding member Rodney Garnett & fellow local musicians feature an array of colorful, tone bar instruments & gongs. Curious attendees are welcome to take part in a brief gamelan workshop after the performance!
Master Balinese artists I Made Lasmawan & Ni Kethut Marni dedicated the ensemble's instruments in 2017 & named the new ensemble Raga Garnita, 'Joyful Heart.' The Black Hills Balinese Gamelan is based in Spearfish, SD.
