Sekaha Gong Gita Asmara was formed in 1996 to explore and present Balinese arts in Vancouver, BC. The 25-member (plus dancers) orchestra has a partly rotating personnel made up of professional, amateur, and student musicians, centered around a strong core membership that has been performing in the ensemble for two or more years.
Gita Asmara presents annual public performances, often with Balinese guest musicians and dancers, and has contributed to raising awareness of Balinese arts in Vancouver, actively supporting this international art form.
