On Sunday, April 8, the Balinese dance troupe Gamelan Galak Tika will perform in Lorimer Chapel on the Colby College campus in Waterville. The 3 p.m. performance is open to the public and free of charge.

Gamelan Galak Tika is the Boston area’s first Balinese performance group. A community ensemble in residence at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Gamelan Galak Tika was founded in 1993 to study and perform both traditional and modern Balinese music and dance, and to develop new works in collaboration with Balinese and American artists.

Gamelan Galak Tika’s 30 members include MIT students, staff, and community members. Evan Ziporyn, associate professor of music at MIT, is the group’s founder and director. Gamelan Galak Tika has performed at such venues as Wellesley College, the Planet Gamelan Festival at Dartmouth and Boston’s First Night.
