Do you know much about Indonesia music? Gamelan? But do you know much about Indonesian music except Gamelan?

Indonesia is a country full of diversity. With over 17,000 islands, it is known as the world’s largest archipelagic state and supports one of the world’s highest levels of biodiversity. The country is also the home to thousands of distinct native ethnicities and hundreds of linguistic groups. Those cultural differences have created an exciting musical world for Indonesia today where the music is full of diversities, stories and bursting with colour.

Join us for an exploration of the culture and music of Indonesia in piano, flute and Indonesian art songs. The concert will be featuring works from prominent Indonesian composers, such as Ananda Sukarlan, Jaya Suprana, Mochtar Embut, Trisutji Kamal and Iskandar. The evening will also include the premiere of a work by Elina Sidharta, an Indonesian composer from RBC.
