Seruan Setu – The Secret Gardens of the Sea

Seruan Setu – The Secret Gardens of the Sea promises an enchanting musical journey that spotlights Malaysia's endangered seagrass ecosystems, through the magic of the performing arts. Seagrasses are vital to both marine life and coastal communities, yet their rapid decline is often overlooked. In this concert by Rhythm in Bronze, the group will present original gamelan compositions interwoven with compelling stories of seagrass and the communities that depend on them. We discuss what's in store, and also the team's commitment to connecting environmental issues with the arts with both Dr Jillian Ooi, the Artistic & Music Director of Rhythm in Bronze, she’s also a Marine Ecologist & Senior Lecturer at the University of Malaya, and a Pew Fellow in Marine Conservation, and Sharmini Ratnasingam, Rhythm in Bronze's Executive Producer.
