As Mt. Agung Volcano rumbles beneath their feet, Çudamani prepares for their California Tour. This is their 20th Anniversary tour. On Sunday Feb 18, 2018 the company performs two shows at The Broad Stage, Santa Monica College Performing Arts Center. Their new full-length work is BHUMI-MOTHER EARTH based on the theme of nature. The themes for the California tour are not hypothetical, as the Hindu/Buddhist Balinese believe that Ibu Pertiwi speaks to the human world through her actions. The life of the Balinese is filled with ceremonies which pay honor and respect to three worlds - the divine, the human and the natural. Hinduism is deeply and gently interwoven with Bali’s sacred connection to the elements of the Earth and nature, resulting in a belief system that is uniquely Balinese Hinduism. The ultimate goal of any ritual and performance is to create and maintain harmony and balance between these worlds. The concert will bring these insights and spirit centered stories to the concert stage as only Cudamani can. It will transport audiences into the poetry, symbolism, music and splendor of Bali, celebrating both the exciting innovations and deeply rooted traditions of this complex and creative culture. This tour is organized and produced by the World Festival of Sacred Music-LA.
