Established in 2000, Mekar Bhuana Conservatory aims to document and reconstruct rare and previously extinct Balinese gamelan and dance, as well as educate people about the value and beauty of court and archaic art-forms. Located in Denpasar, Bali, their troupes have regular gamelan and dance practices, and visitors are most welcome. Their semara pagulingan, pelegongan, gender wayang and genggong troupes have an extensive portfolio of both local and international performances. The conservatory offers gamelan and dance tuition in a private, group or workshop format. A workshop programme may include accommodation and cultural tours, and can be custom designed. Workshop seminars are presented by ethnomusicologist and gamelan musician, Vaughan Hatch, and award-winning dance instructor, Putu Evie Suyadnyani. For more details, check out their websites.
