The University of Leeds Gamelan Ensemble will perform a collection of traditional music, contemporary repertoire and new pieces on the School of Music’s Javanese Gamelan. This set of bronze gongs and metallophones, named The
Golden Thread in reference to Leeds’ strong connections with the textile industry, was handcrafted in the court city of Surakarta in Central Java fifteen years ago. The ensemble is directed by Emily Crossland (MA York), a former student of Dr Neil Sorrell and a performer, composer and educator with various northern gamelan ensembles.
