Cokorda Istri Nilawati is an accomplished dancer and arja (Balinese opera) singer from the Island of Bali. I Wayan Sinti (1943-) is a teacher and Balinese vocalist and instrumentalist from Banjar Dauh, Ubung Kaja, on the Island of Bali. He graduated from KOKAR in 1964 and taught there for several years. Sinti has mastered many kinds of Balinese vocal music and nearly all forms of instrumental music. He has helped revive many forms of gamelan including, gamelan gambang, selonding, saron, gong luang, gambuh, semar pegulingan, legong, bebarongan, and others. Sinti has spread his love of Balinese music by teaching village ensembles throughout Bali, composing in both the classical and contemporary genres, and serving as a senior spokesman for the Balinese performing arts. In 1974, Sinti taught various forms of Balinese music at the Center for World Music in Berkley, CA. In 1978 he returned to the U.S. for four years to study ethnomusicology and teach Balinese music at San Diego State University, where he graduated with an MA in music. In 1994, Sinti created a new type of gamelan ensemble called Manikasanti, which means "jewel for peace." Manikasanti features a new tuning system that allows for the playing of various Balinese modes and musical scales, and was inspired by his long study of ritual vocal and instrumental music. Sinti completed a residency at the University of Washington, School of Music, as a visiting artist where he taught Balinese vocal and gamelan music. During his time at the university, he created a new form of gamelan called Siwa Nada which was constructed with the help of his students. Sinti is husband to Cokorda Istri Nilawati.
