This fascinating instrument from Indonesia consists of a variety of gongs, bells, xylophone-type sections, and produces a wonderfully magical sound.
In 2014, we were privileged to receive the wonderful gift of a full Gamelan from the Sultan of Yogyakarta. Gamelans of such distinguished and auspicious origins usually receive a blessing and name when they leave their maker’s workshop.
Our Gamelan has been named Kyai Jati Roso. Kyai is an honorific bestowed upon important or sacred artefacts, and Jati Roso translates as ‘pure consciousness’.
The Gamelan is a terrific instrument for both learning and performing, and a rewarding musical and social activity. There is no requirement of previous musical experience for the ensembles – for each class time, new members will be incorporated with existing members to create a dynamic orchestra!
