Gamelan

Gamelan

A traditional Indonesian music ensemble of percussion instruments

The word gamelan comes from the Javanese word 'gamel' which means hammer. 

Our authentic gamelan orchestras originate from Bali and are made up of 3 different sized gongs known as ageng, kempul and kenong.

Our three metallophones carrying the core melodies include the saron, peking and demung whilst drums and bells are incorporated to maintain the rhythmic flow.

Our expert facilitators bring instruments for the whole class to play together. Introducing concepts of rhythm and tone, this workshop allows every child to explore their musicality.

The resulting melody is truly memorable!
