Established in the year 2000, Mekar Bhuana Centre has the aim of reconstructing and restoring rare and lost Balinese gamelan and dance repertoire and instruments. The centre uses the largest collection of privately owned antique gamelan ensembles in the world to faithfully reconstruct music that has often been lost for many generations. Education and repatriation are a main focus, and over the decades Mekar Bhuana has increasingly generated interest among Balinese youth who are keen to revitalize aspects of their performing art-forms that have disappeared. Mekar Bhuana Centre’s sustainability relies on support from, patrons, sponsors and donations, as well as income from their workshop and cultural immersion programs and Mekar Bhuana Online Store.
