Ngudi Raras

Saturday, March 31, 2018 @ 8:00 pm


Ngudi Raras is a group of master Javanese musicians hailing from Central Java, Indonesia, and is led by the renowned drummer Wakidi Dwidjomartono. Wakidi is a native of Surakarta and has garnered a reputation as one of the most masterful and experienced living musicians, having performed extensively for dance, shadow puppet plays, and klenèngan. In klenèngan, the setlist is not planned beforehand; the bowed fiddle (rebab) player signals each piece by its introductory phrase; the musicians must recognize this to know which piece is being selected.

Javanese klenèngan foster a relaxing environment in contrast with formal western-style concerts. It is acceptable for audience members to chat quietly with their neighbor if they notice something fascinating in the music.

Featuring Wakidi Dwidjomartono, Mulyani Soepono, Darsono Hadiraharjo, Paimin, Sularno Martowiyono, and Sri Mulyana. This concert is part of a U.S. tour.

Free; no tickets required.
