Come and catch Joko Susilo performing in a village atmosphere, outdoors in the Hannah Courtyard near Cuba Street. Gamelan Padhang Moncar have accompanied him for over 20 years now and it’s always exciting to get the opportunity again.

Brief synopsis of the story:

As the war between the royal cousins Pandawa and Korawa rages on, Prince Abimanyo is killed. Furious, Gathutkaca heads into battle, bidding his pregnant wife Pergiwa farewell. Tragically, Gathutkaca is slain by the magic arrow called Wijayan Danu.
