Sekar Jaya has been invited to perform in the Balinese Arts Festival this summer in Denpasar. Past performances in Bali have sparked cross-cultural growth on both sides of the Pacific. For example, after seeing the women of Sekar Jaya playing in a gamelan on our group's first tour, in the '80s, many women's groups have sprung up across Bali.
Past tours have had funding from grants and our generous patrons, but this time around we all have to pay our own expenses, the biggest of which is airfare, Somewhere between $1,600 and $2,600. The past year has been challenging for me money-wise. The economy is still not thriving, and work has been slow, with little to no money left for savings.
This is where you, my awesome friends, can help. If you can spare a few bucks, it would mean a lot. I would be eternally grateful, and Sekar Jaya sounds a lot better with a good suling player.
