Who are we?
We are a group of young people who love to play angklung and play angklung with love.
In 2010 UNESCO recognised angklung as world’s intangible cultural heritage. This status should not be taken for granted. As young Indonesians, it is our responsibility to preserve our heritage by promoting the beauty of angklung worldwide.
Support and collaboration
We are very grateful to get a full support from Paguyuban Pasundan and Sembilan Matahari. We also have a privilege to do some collaboration with some prominent angklung communities such as Angklung Hamburg Orchestra, Angklung Eindhoven, Angklung Web Institute (AWI), Saung Angklung Udjo, and Bale Angklung Bandung to name a few.
