About:

Gamelan is an Indonesian word that means "hammering", and the beautiful ringing tones of Indonesian Metallophones are produced with a few very simple techniques that anyone of any age or ability can learn. The main function of gamelan in Indonesian society is to create a fun and positive atmosphere in the community, whether for listeners or performers alike, and the interaction and listening skills required to produce simple and enjoyable sounding music are a fun way to improve group dynamics.

Also presented as part of the program is a virtuoso performance of unusual flutes and Jaw Harps from around the archipelago,using Bahasa Indonesia,  to educate students about the language, cultural diversity and geography of Indonesia

Francis Gilfedder has travelled to Java and Bali on government scholarships to learn the secrets of the gamelan, and has been in the industry for 22 years.
