Chicago Balinese Gamelan creates transformational cultural experiences that build community and expand individual perspective.

Comprised of 18 musicians and anywhere between five to nine dancers on any given performance, CBG is a community-centered ensemble that creates high-intensity, exciting, quality performances while introducing and engaging the public with Indonesian culture, music and dance through performances, lectures and interactive workshops. The organization’s vision is to be a recognized international resource for learning and experiencing Balinese performing arts and culture. The ensemble rehearses year-round at its studio at MANA Contemporary in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood.
