On the nightly news, Bali's Mount Agung volcano is seen spewing rock and lava, a fitting intro as Çudamani takes the local stage. The 25-member troupe, Bali's premier music and dance ensemble, is based in a village at the foot of the volcano and rehearsed for this visit amid its rumbling and eruptions. Performances are primarily events presented as a spiritual offering at temples, generally not on view for tourists. For this visit, Çudamani offers a family-friendly matinee, but for the evening concert, the ensemble premieres Bhumi-Mother Earth, a subject close to the performers' hearts as they consider their upcoming return to that lava-gushing volcano.
