Request for Pictures of the Javanese Gamelan

I hope you all enjoyed the exotic Javanese gamelan ensemble “Children of the Mud Volcano,” directed by ASU Ethnomusicology Professor Dr. Ted Solís. Dr. Solís was one of my main professors when I was at ASU, and it was great seeing him. He is hoping that some of you took videos or photos of his group and has asked me to help collect them. If so, please email Chris Dorsey.

Thank you!
Chris Dorsey
