Welcome to The Gamelan Social! Performed by world music band Kulcha Pop, the performance features traditional gamelan instruments, a percussion-based style of music originating from Indonesia.

The Gamelan Social will introduce different gamelan instruments and how they are played. Students will also have the opportunity to come on stage and play a composition with the ensemble, who will play other traditional Asian instruments such as the Indian bansuri and Western instruments such as the drumkit, keyboard, bass and violin.
