GONG TIRTA live in the Tropentheater Amsterdam sunday 19 februari 2012

'Een Kikker in 't Paleis?!' (première)

Youtube trailer.

FaceBook.

Enige reacties uit het publiek op deze (wederom geheel uitverkochte) voorstelling:

 

"prachtige voorstelling in het Tropentheater gezien van Gong Tirta. Bedoeld voor kinderen, maar veel te genieten voor grote mensen. De kikkerprins, maar dan anders en vooral heel kunstzinnig! Prachtig verteld en gedanst en de gamelanmuziek past daar geweldig bij. Ben ik een mens, of een kikker? De kloof tussen culturen in een notedop. Echt een aanrader! Renadi Santoso is een genie!"

 

‘Theatervoorstelling Gong Girta zondagmiddag 19 febr, Tropentheater A'dam / Jessica Polak schreef de tekst bij dit ontzettend leuke tropische sprookje (met het Balinees gamelanorkest Gong Tirta en verteller (+ muzikant +basgitarist +acteur +publiekstovenaar!) Renadi Santoso. Met zang, maskers, dans, bonte kleding en een kleurrijk gamelaninstrumentarium van Bali. Zou vaker gezien moeten kunnen worden...’

 

‘… de muziek zo prachtig en licht, erg leuk  met de 2 gitaren erbij, bamboe fluit en mooie hoge zang. Op deze luchtige manier  bijzonder geschikt voor kinderen. Jullie hadden de zaal in concentratie.  Ik vindt Renadi een goede en overtuigende performer. Het meest heb ik genoten  van zijn dans. Knap! waar heeft hij dat geleerd? Zelfs de vingers en de ogen.  Zijn teksten rustig en helder, prettige stem. Superlatieven!’

Hier enige cap's uit de DVD:

 

10 may: release of the Live DVD 'Tales of Two Continents' by Gong Tirta. Order the DVD>. View the YouTube Trailer>.

 

Attention!

A special info page on the new Gong Tirta CD 'Tales of Two Continents' has been added to the Dutch version of this site. At the moment it's in Dutch lanuage only.

 

A special note on something more obscure:

In the past, Renadi collaborated very intensively with several musicians on improvisational lines. Definitely not for the faint of heart! From the abundant stock of recordings several albums were compiled with a selection of the best only (ranging from 1979 to 2003). Adventurous, unusual musics delivered with power, sensitivity and dedication. These are being published for the first time on the Jamendo music-sharing site, probably the no. 1 in the world, with more to follow.

Check out: Aorta, Oblivion and Poldergeist. Or click on one of these albums to go directly to the corresponding Jamendo page.
