Tonight’s concert features music from cultures from around the world - some in traditional forms, others in experimental combinations. The program draws from various traditions, including Trinidadian steel drums, Balinese shadow theatre music and kecak, Indian classical raga music, Japanese taiko drumming, Arabic popular songs and Sundanese gamelan.

The UCalgary World Music Ensemble brings together students from across campus to perform music of various ethnic traditions from throughout the world. The group is made up of both music and non-music majors, undergraduate and graduate students, and even alumni and community members. The ensemble performs a concert at the end of each semester, and appears at other events.
