    7pm Full Concert- Bhumi-Mother Earth Buy tickets

    Created in the shadow of the Agung Volcano in Bali, the 25 member Cudamani ensemble prepares for their 20th Anniversary tour of California. On Sunday Feb 2018 the company performs 2 shows at the Broad Stage, Santa Monica College Performing Arts Center. Their new full-length work is BHUMI-MOTHER EARTH based on the theme of nature. The Hindu/Buddhist Balinese believe that Mother Earth speaks to the human world through her actions. The life of the Balinese is filled with ceremonies which pay honor to the three worlds- the divine, the human and the natural. The ultimate goal of any ritual and performance is to create and maintain harmony between these worlds. The concert will bring these insights and spirit centered stories to the concert stage as only Cudamani can.
