'a traditional gamelan ensemble'
Gamelan (pronounced Gah-Meh-Lahn) is the traditional native folk music of the Indonesian archipel. A gamelan ensemble consists of a variety of metal percussion instruments, usually made of bronze or brass, including xylophones, drums, and gongs. The name "gamelan" comes from gamel, a Javanese word for a type of hammer. It's this variety of speed and pitch that gives an utterly melodic touch to the gamelan percussion sound.
Elsje Plantema founded the Widosari Ensemble back in 1993, currently based in Amsterdam. Through the years Widorsari has built a rock solid reputation worldwide. They perform in different constellations: from a massive orchestra to an intimate ensemble. Game of Tones is excited to welcome their extra large formula!
