Gamelan Winter Chimes

Relax with an afternoon of beautiful Gamelan music and dance from Java, Indonesia.Musicians from Southbank Centre’s community gamelan programme perform an array of mystical repertoire showcasing gongs, chimes and metallophones, as well as lively upbeat party pieces to welcome in the festive season. 

They are joined by dancer Ni Madé Pujawati and the spectacular Lila Bhawa Indonesian Dance UK.

Charity Good Vibrations will also perform a short set with project participants to demonstrate their unique approach to using the gamelan to bring people together in challenging and community settings.

Southbank Centre has been home to Javanese gamelan orchestra ‘Kyai Lebdhajiwa’ since 1987, which was presented as a gesture of friendship to the people of Great Britain by the government of the Republic of Indonesia.

Find out more about our gamelan programme and see how you can get involved.
