Makukuhan are a dynamic mini-Gamelan orchestra, whose performances are a riot of colour and rhythm, including pitch-bending drums, a mesmerising masked dance and unbelievably rapid Javanese clapping. Gamelan features a series of bronze gongs and metallaphones and is integral to Indonesian culture. Students will be captivated by the pattern-based sequences that have made the Gamelan one of the world’s most influential musical exports of the 20th century.

As is usual with school performances, the curriculum is supported, and it is expected that all students will attend to learn and enjoy.
