Gamelan Bike Bike draws its musical inspiration from Bali, Indonesia and its raw materials from the scrap metal bins of Vancouver. In 2012, instrument maker George Rahi collected over 100 discarded bicycle frames to build the instruments, configuring the colourful metal scraps into new kinds of metallophones and gongs. The 10 member ensemble is dedicated to performing new works for gamelan, including recent compositions from guest composer I Putu Gede Sukaryana (Balot) from Bali.
Hadden Park is located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded Indigenous territories of the x?m?θkw?y??m (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and S?l?ílw?ta? (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
