[click to view poster]

Hawai'i Gagaku Kenkyukai (Hawai'i Gagaku Society, lower photo) welcomes to Hawai'i the members of Japan's Tsu Garyokai (top photo) for joint concert of gagaku music.

Gagaku is the court music of Japan. Tracing its history to 9th century Japan, it is considered one of the oldest continuously performed music traditions in the world. Gagaku includes instrumental music, vocal music, and dance.

The beginnings of Tsu Garyokai came in 1892 with the establishment of the Tenrikyo Tsu Grand Church in Tsu City of Mie Prefecture, Japan. Several young members of the church performed gagaku during services, and their activities gradually led to establishment of the Gagaku Department of Tenrikyo Tsu Grand Church, which offered gagaku classes and performances. After a short hiatus during World War II, activities resumed, and in 1955, the department was renamed Tsu Garyokai. Since then, the group has performed extensively, both inside and outside the Tenrikyo church, using gagaku as an educational tool. The head of Tsu Garyokai is Rev. Kazunari Kubo, the Director of Tenrikyo Tsu Grand Church and Head Minister of the Tenrikyo Tsu-Nakazato branch.

For this concert, Tsu Garyokai has selected a saibara vocal piece, Isenoumi, a kangen (instrumental) piece, Ringa, and Ranyo-o, a solo dance.

Hawai'i Gagaku Kenkyukai is a community-University organization dedicated to the study and performance of the gagaku tradition. The director is Rev. Masatoshi Shamoto, who has taught gagaku at the UH Manoa Music Department for over 40 years. Rev. Shamoto has been an important performer and teacher of gagaku in Japan, Hawai`i, and Germany. The ensemble consists of former class members and musicians from the community.

UH Gamelan Ensemble

Javanese dancer Baghawan Ciptoning (l), and Balinese dancer I Made Sidia.

A gamelan is an Indonesian music ensemble, typically composed of gongs, chimes, xylophones, drums and bamboo flutes, along with bowed and plucked string instruments. Javanese styles of music and dance tend to be more serene, while Balinese forms tend more toward the dramatic.

Celebrated dancer and choreographer Baghawan Ciptoning from Solo, Indonesia, will first perform several Javanese dance pieces, including the Bugis warrior dance and the Gathutkaca gandrung, which depicts the emotional turmoil of a hero in the ancient Sanskrit epic Mahabharata. Ciptoning’s work explores an unusual repertoire of classicism and inventive approach to faith and fantasy, drawing inspiration and technique from ceremonial Javanese court dance. In addition to Indonesia, he has performed extensively in the United States, India, Japan, Thailand, Finland and Malaysia.

Acclaimed Balinese dancer I Made Sidia [Ee Mah-deh See-dee-ah] will then perform four topeng, or masked dances, depicting ancient stories of mythical kings and princes. Mr. Sidia, who has been training in the performing arts since the age of 10, is currently a leading Balinese puppeteer, masked dancer, musician and choreographer. He has performed in Australia, the U.S. and Europe.

The performances are presented by the East-West Center Arts Program and the Hawai`i Gamelan Society, with support from the UHM Music Department, and are part of the EWC’s 50th anniversary year celebrations.
