Gambuh Unmasked

Gambuh Unmasked

Learn about the oldest Balinese classical court dance with the dancers and musicians of Sanggar Tari Bali Nyoman Kakul. Dating back to the late Majapahit era, the dance-drama Gambuh is rarely performed today owing to the complexity of the form. It is credited with introducing a narrative element to Balinese performing arts and having an influence on many subsequent forms of Balinese dance. Gambuh is based on the tales of the mythical Prince Panji.
