This free-of-charge concert would be the artistic climax of a project subsidised by the University of Hong Kong’s Knowledge Exchange Office aspiring to bring the art of gamelan and contemporary music to a wider audience. Despite the community-engaging components such as talks and workshops have been sufficiently funded, the production of this performance still needs significant financial support. Therefore, we hereby invite each of you who share our visions to join us in facilitating this event.
