  1. Wonderful! I know it is different from Gamelan, which has been a favorite of mine since I first heard it, maybe in 1971, but the sound is similar to my uneducated ears. (I just listened on Youtube.) I like the sound a lot – gentle but very lively, with a complex rhythm. The photo is nice because you can see the instrument, the hammer, and the concentration of the players – I like their simple white T shirts and black head scarves, too. Thank you for bringing us these important pieces of your culture.


    • It’s my pleasure, Blue. I am quite surprised that you have known the gamelan for long. There is another similar bamboo musical instruments from other part of Western Java known as Angklung. The Angklung is played by shaking the instruments. You can enjoy it on Youtube too and can see the different among these instrument. unfortunately I have no photo of them. In Cigudeg, we have Angklung Gubrag which the instrument is made from large bamboo tubes and that is the only one type found in our country. Thank you so much for taking interest on this part. Have a nice day. 🙂


    • When I was young (0 – 13 yo), I used to like This performance in which usually performed by a group of men and fully humorous dialogues and critiques on people’s odd behaviors. So funny and entertaining! Thank you again for your nice words. It means a lot to me, Massy. 😉
