Serpentine Park Nights: aga ujma

London09 Jul 202119:00 - 20:00 GMT

We’ve partnered with Serpentine to broadcast the 2021 edition of its experimental, interdisciplinary live series, Park Nights. We proudly present five nights of unique and site-specific performances from Aga Ujma, Jota Mombaça, John Glacier, Rhea Dillon, Sophia Al-Maria & Tosh Basco, direct from the 20th Serpentine Pavilion.

For Park Nights 2021, London-based, multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and composer, aga ujma, presents a new performance titled ‘sun was glazed in rainbow’ based on personal stories, poems, traditional Indonesian musical pieces, and compositions inspired by the Serpentine Pavilion and its character. Conceived as a transformative movement across two chapters, the performance will shift from an intimate solo set written for sasando, an Indonesian 32-strings bamboo zither and harp, to a more expanded Javanese ensemble of intricate gamelan instruments, including bronze xylophones, gongs, rebab – a bowed fiddle – and other various traditional and non-traditional percussion instruments.
