Ever heard of the Javanese Gamelan? In this appreciation workshop, you get an up-close experience of this ancient musical ensemble which is also depicted on the walls of Borobudur Temple. It is a percussive instrument that is at once both melodious & hypnotic. Let me show you the enchanting beauty of this wonderful and unique form of musical expression! The class will begin with a brief introduction on Javanese Gamelan and its significance in traditional Javanese affairs. Next you will be introduced to the various instruments within the ensemble and get to briefly try your hand at them to sample its sound and technique. Once you're feeling acquainted with the orchestra, a professional Gamelan instructor will teach you how to play a short piece of music which you can then perform together with the instructor once you have mastered it.
Hey! My name is Yuli - I am Javanese, born and bred in the beautiful charming city of Yogyakarta (Jogja). I love the city for its deep cultural roots and its historical significance but mostly for its timeless rustic charm. As a licensed guide for the last 5 years, I've enjoyed showcasing Yogyakarta to the world through its street food & street art, the mysterious Gamelan orchestra & fascinating puppet shows, and in my residents, both old & new - traditional & modern and finally in a culturally rich aura that hangs above the city. During this experience you will also get to meet Pardiman as the local Gamelan instructor as well as Harits & Anisa that will help with translation. I find immense satisfaction in showcasing my city to the world! Come join me and discover this beloved city through the eyes of a local! See you in Jogja!
This class is conducted in a local arts school specializing in teaching young Indonesians traditional art forms (be it in music, dance or other forms of traditional art) with the aim of its preservation through the next generation of artists! The school is also located in a quite countryside location around 30 minutes from Jogja's center - a perfect venue to get away from the city and enjoy a relaxed musical afternoon :)
