Çudamani is Bali’s premier music and dance troupe, from the artist dedicated village of Pengosekan. The company, which the LA Times praised for its “brilliant performers, stunning cohesion and superbly compelling” is hailed as Bali’s most forward thinking music and dance ensemble and known for their exceptional creativity and artistry. Led by artistic directors- I Dewa Putu Berata and Emiko Saraswati Susilo, the 25 member ensemble present traditional arts with sophistication and flair.

On Sunday Feb 18, 2018 the company launches their 20th Anniversary 8 City California Tour with 2 shows at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica, Los Angeles. The matinee show at 2pm invites children to experience their artistry in a family friendly environment. Then at 7pm the premiere of their full evening work will transport audiences deep into the visual poetry, symbolism, music and splendor of Bali, celebrating both the exciting innovations and deeply rooted traditions of this complex and sophisticated culture.
