Experience the magic of the gamelan with your class group

This summer we present a three week creative residency with the Dwi Gambira Sari Javanese Gamelan from 18 June to 9 July. This gamelan could also be seen as part of Light Up Lancaster at Lancaster Castle last November.

A Gamelan is an impressive orchestra of percussion comprising mainly of gongs, metallophones and drums and is a traditional ensemble of Java and Bali in Indonesia. The gamelan requires many people to play it collaboratively, each playing a melodic pattern on a gong, metallophone or drum to produce multilayered and beautiful music.
