Peni Candra Rini is one of few vocalists in Indonesia who performs sindhen, a female solo accompanist to a gamelan orchestra. As a lecturer in the department of Karawitan ISI (Institut Seni Indonesia), Surakarta, Java, she is strongly committed to preserving the musical traditions of her country. Peni is currently in-residence at the California Institute of the Arts on a six-month grant from the Asian Cultural Council. She has performed in numerous festivals and concerts throughout Africa, Asia, Australia, and Europe. Tonight’s performance marks her U.S. / North American debut.

Los Angeles Electric 8 is a chamber octet in which eight guitarists reclaim classical music for the electric guitar. The effect is an exploration of a greater potential for the electric guitar with both intentional and accidental nods to the rock characteristics of the instrument.
