I Wayan Sinti – Gegilak

I Wayan Sinti produced several recordings at Jack Straw as part of a 2004 residency in the Artist Support Program. At the same time, he was in residency as a visiting artist at the University of Washington School of Music, where he taught Balinese vocal and gamelan music. During his time at the University of Washington he also created a new form of gamelan called Siwa Nada, which was constructed with the help of his students. Read more about this project and see images of the instruments at the UW Ethnomusicology Musical Instrument collection online.
