Angklung workshop with Angklung KJRI with Anyra Zulinarti (director of the KJRI angklung group)

An angklung ensemble consists of around forty individual bamboo instruments that are gently shaken to create a sound. Since the 1940s, angklung sets have been modelled on a western/European style of music. A fairly large group of musicians is needed to play a song, with each musician playing one or several notes. The ensemble is directed by means of hand gestures, similar to a choir. In 2021 the Weltkulturen Museum bought an angklung ensemble which could be played for exhibition projects – now, for the first time, this will happen within a workshop setting.

Duration: 1.5 to 2 hours
