Cultural Fusion: The Gamelan Experience

This unique mega-event, which will transform Washington National Cathedral’s Great Nave into an exotic cultural kaleidoscope, includes both Javanese and Balinese gamelan with dancers, archival films, and much more.

We’ll tell the story of the 1889 Paris Exposition (the one with the Eiffel Tower), which introduced Claude Debussy to the hypnotic fragrance of Indonesian music and dance –an introduction that transformed Western music via Debussy and countless other composers.
