Annie Reynolds earned her PhD in Theatre and MA in Asian Studies from the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa and her BM in Music from San Francisco State University. Annie has a background in music, especially composition and violin. While completing her undergraduate degree, she became interested in Balinese gamelan music.

Prior to undertaking her graduate studies, Annie spent several years in Bali studying music and dance, including one year of study as a Darmasiswa RI scholarship student at the Indonesian Arts Institute (Institut Seni Indonesia) in Denpasar, Bali.

Annie has lived in Hawai‘i since 2007. Since 2009 she and her husband, I Made Widana, have been leading the Honolulu-based Balinese gamelan music and dance ensembles Gamelan Segara Madu, and more recently Gamelan Taksu Gitaning Shanti. Together they have offered numerous educational outreach programs across Hawai‘i through the auspices of the Statewide Cultural Extension Program (UHM Outreach College), UHM Department of Theatre and Dance, Arts Focus Southeast Asia, and the East-West Center.

Annie has worked with the East-West Center Arts Program since 2008 assisting with operations, administration, educational outreach, and curation. She has curated a number of exhibitions at the East-West Center Gallery including “Cosmic Characters: Wood Puppets of Asia,” “Inside Out: 15 Years of Exhibitions at the East-West Center Gallery,” and “Musical Instruments: Sounds of the Asia Pacific.” Annie prioritizes teaching about cultures through the arts and approaches her work by understanding the interconnected nature between the performing and visual arts.
