Join this special Gamelan Workshop with director Dr Peter Moran, who will teach members of the public how to play a short simple piece on the gamelan for themselves. Why not experience something new and try out the Javanese Gamelan at the UCD Festival? Gamelan is the ancient classical music of Indonesia. It is an orchestra of tuned percussion instruments including hanging gongs and metal bars. In this workshop you will learn to play a traditional piece of music from the island of Java using a variety of percussion instruments, and you will learn about the history and culture of Javanese gamelan music.
You can drop in to this event whenever you’d like, but don’t forget to register for the Festival Hub Zone if you wish to attend.
