Song Dynasty is a show based upon traditional Asian folk songs and the gamelan percussion ensembles found in Indonesia. The music is comprised of pentatonic scales and interlocking hemeolas. Many visual possibilities are available with the musical selection. A very serious approach with traditional Asian dress is one possibility. Another idea is to use a movie or video game approach to the visual design. Back-drops, costumes and floors with Kanji symbols (Asian alphabet), yin-yang medallions, and gi’s are all just some of the possibilities.

The music ranges in dramatic ideas from dark and dramatic to light and beautiful. The ending is a “fight sequence” using a super-slow-motion section with a running bass solo underneath leading to a drum-to-drum ending that will bring the house down. This is an exciting show with great impacts and effects. Showcase your line with this crowd pleasing selection.
