Javanese Musician Ki Midiyanto

Katia Chaterji (Indonesian 2016), a 2016 ADF recipient, invited esteemed Javanese musician Ki Midiyanto to the University of Washington’s Seattle Campus to tune and repair their gamelan instruments and shadow puppets. The project also supported several events, including several lectures, performances, and dinners through which the campus and greater Seattle community had the opportunity to meet Mr. Midiyanto. Along with the ADF grant, Katia received matching support from University of Washington’s Southeast Asia Center and School of Music, which she used to provide Mr. Midiyanto’s travel and lodging as well as refreshments at each of the events. “My intention for this project was to increase awareness of Indonesian cultural and performing arts on campus, and to bring attention to the vibrant Indonesian communities that we see in the USA today.”
