In the Performing Arts Gallery on the third floor of the Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM) is an impressive set of authentic Javanese gamelan orchestral instruments. Have you ever wondered how these instruments are played and what they sound like?
Here is a unique opportunity for you to find out! In this workshop you will get to play on them - yes – the actual museum artefacts! In the process you will also learn about the gamelan’s history, traditions and related cultural activities like wayang kulit (Indonesian shadow puppetry) and Javanese dance. You will also find out that Javanese gamelan is different from Balinese gamelan!
Our instructors will open your eyes and ears to the delight of gamelan music and teach you to play at least 2 traditional gamelan songs! Hearing gamelan music after this workshop will never be the same again to you!
