STOP 4: Gamelan Room

Jude Kelly, Shân McLennan and others talk about the gift of a gamelan from the people of Indonesia to Southbank Centre and the people of Great Britain. 

Thousands and thousands of people came and played the gamelan and marvelled at it and were hugely interested in it, so it was given on a permanent basis to the Southbank Centre... and it's still with us now
