Gamelan is the traditional musical ensembles of Indonesia, typically from the islands of Bali or Java. The ensembles features a variety of instruments such as sets of tuned bronze gongs, gong-chimes, metallophones, drums, bamboo flutes, bowed and plucked string instruments. A gamelan orchestra can sometimes include singers.  Gamelan music, weather played live or the recorded version, usually accompanies important events such as weddings, rituals and ceremonies, traditional dance and wayang performances.

Gamelan comprises two scales; the slendro (minor) and pelog (major). Each instrument has its functions. Gongs maintain the basic structure of the music; the metallophones carry the theme, while the kendang leads the orchestra by controlling the tempo of the musical piece.

Gamelan Jawa

Javanese Gamelan

There are generally three distinct types of gamelan , the Javanese, Balinese and Sundanese styles, each with its own distinctive musical scale, dynamics and mood. In Central Java, the gamelan is an essential element in many kraton (palace) ceremonies. In Bali, almost all religious rituals are accompanied by the gamelan .

Gamelan Bali

Balinese Gamelan

Certain pieces of the ensemble are believed to possess supernatural powers and would be played to ward off evil spirits or even manipulate the weather. Such special pieces are given titles and treated with utmost respect.

Experience and learn how to play the Javanese Gamelan

Apart from splendid natural wonders and ancient temple sites, the traditional ensemble music of the Javanese, Gamelan is another big draw for tourists on the island of Java. Predominantly using percussive instruments such as metallophones, hand-played drums, xylophones or bamboo flutes, learning how to play this unique music is surprisingly simple to start. You can join an ensemble with the instructions of local musicians without studying the difficult parts. Sitting surrounded by majestic gongs and playing your own music, this experience is an interesting excursion into part of Indonesian culture.

Indonesia - Gamelan: From Palace To Paddy Field

by World Music Network November 02, 2011

Indonesia - Gamelan: From Palace To Paddy Field

The shimmering sounds of the gamelan have fascinated and delighted Western visitors to Indonesia for half a millennium. The structural complexity of the music and its sonorous and ethereal sound have inspired twentieth-century composers such as Debussy, Britten and John Cage, and in recent years there’s been an enthusiastic growth in playing in gamelan ensembles in the West.

A gamelan has been described as “one instrument played by many people”. It is essentially an ensemble of tuned percussion, consisting mainly of gongs, metallophones (similar to xylophones, but with metal instead of wooden bars) and drums; it may also include singers, bamboo flutes and spike-fiddle. In Indonesia the ensembles and their sounds are diverse, ranging from Central Java’s bronze court gamelans to the bamboo village orchestras in Bali.

The Javanese Gamelan

The largest bronze gamelans in Indonesia are found in Central Java. Although a large gamelan is co-ordinated to an extent by the drummer, its musicians have neither a conductor nor any visual cues, as they all sit facing the same way. It is a communal form of music-making, there are no soloists or virtuosos.

Javan Traditions

Today, nearly ninety percent of Java’s population is Muslim. The traditional arts of gamelan music, dance and theatre, however, have their roots in Java’s Hindu-Buddhist past. The Islam of the Middle East had mixed with Indian Hinduism before reaching Java In the fifteenth century. The new religion also included Sufi beliefs, which acknowledged the power of music and tolerated musical and artistic expression.

European colonialism was another major influence on Javanese thought and culture, through the Dutch East India Company, established in the early seventeenth century. Under Dutch rule, the royal courts did not have much political power, but the arts flourished.

Court Gamelans

Some of the finest gamelans in Java are housed in the courts, including a number of ceremonial gamelans. The largest and loudest, known as gamelan Sekaten, are still played once a year in the palace mosques of Solo and Yogya. Within the palace walls gamelan playing is traditionally regarded as a spiritual discipline – a way of reaching enlightenment.

Gamelan Performances

Gamelan music is today played by a wide range of people in Central Java. Most village halls and neighbourhoods in major towns have a gamelan for use by the local community. Schoolchildren learn basic gamelan pieces and can continue their studies in conservatories and academies of performing arts. Radio Republik Indonesia (RRI) employs professional studio musicians and broadcasts a wide range of gamelan music.

Dance and Shadow Plays

In Java, gamelan music is inseparable from the arts of poetry, dance and drama. Dances accompanied by gamelan music range from the elegant and refined palace srimpi dance to lively village dances. Dance-dramas and shadow plays (wayang kulit) are always accompanied by gamelan music.

Gamelan In Java Today

Life is changing rapidly in Java. For much of the youth population, the gamelan represents the values of the past and is rejected in favour of Western or Indonesian pop. But gamelan tradition is alive, as music-making continues to play a role in community life.

In the twentieth century gamelan composers have become less anonymous. K. R. T. Wasitodiningrat had one of his pieces sent up with the Voyager spacecraft, but the music of Bagong Kussudiardja and Ki Nartosabdho is also well known.

Much artistic experimentation, innovation and exchange is going on in the academies, where musicians and dancers from different regions of Java, Bali and Sumatra work together, as well as with Western musicians.

West Java: Sunda

The island of Java is inhabited by several ethnic groups. The Javanese live mainly in Central and East Java, while the main inhabitants of West Java, or Sunda, are the Sundanese.

Sambasunda Quintet: Java

gamelan tour jakarta

It reflects an enduring classical tradition of Sundanese music while at the same time creating something fresh, modern and original. The music is centred on the  kacapi , a boat-shaped zither whose mellifluous tones have been heard in Sunda (West Java) for centuries.

The instrumentation of the Sambasunda Quintet follows the Tembang Sunda tradition, using up to three  kacapis , augmented by violin and  suling  (bamboo flute) accompanied by a female singer. The addition of the khendang  drums – a large barrel-shaped drum played at both ends with various tones elicited by pressure of the foot and three smaller high-pitched drums known as  kulenter  – is a contemporary touch, and, although some of the compositions are based on standards from the Tembang Sunda repertoire, they are performed with a distinctly urban rhythmic accent. The whole is suffused with a contemporary awareness of global sounds, from the local and international pop music prevalent in Bandung, to the influences of the group’s interactions with international artists they have met and performed with at major music festivals around the world. This is most apparent in the instrumental piece ‘Paddy Pergi Ke Bandung’ (‘Paddy Goes To Bandung’), which, as the title suggests, is a playful collision of Irish and Javanese themes. 

Gamelan Degung

The sound of degung is perhaps the most accessible gamelan music to Western ears. Degung uses its own five-note version of the pelog scale found in Java, and its special character owes much to the additional presence of the suling (bamboo flute), which is regarded as a signature for Sundanese music.

Gamelan Salendro

Nowadays, gamelan Salendro is used primarily to accompany performances of wayang golek – classical dance – as well as the more recent social dance jaipongan. Although it has a lowly, unaristocratic status, it can display a technical brilliance and virtuosity rarely heard in Central Java.

Tembang Sunda

Although related, tembang Sunda is, strictly speaking, not a gamelan genre at all. It was developed at the Kabupaten (Regent’s court) of Cianjur during the colonial era, and consists of sung poetry accompanied by one or two kecapi (zithers) together with a suling or a rebab.

Gamelan music from the island of Madura is, in some respects, closer to the traditions of mainland Central Java. Of particular note is the topeng dalang, in which the great Indian epics of the Mahabharata and Ramayana, as well as the Javanese story of Panji, are recounted.

The Osinger of Banyuwangi represent yet another branch of East Javanese music and dance. Angklung (bamboo xylophone) is played by young boys through amateur organizations, while Gandrung is performed by professional musicians at all-night social events, and consists of a small group of instrumentalists together with a female singer-dancer (the gandrung).

The kecak was adopted in the twentieth century from an ancient trance dance into a drama using the Hindu Ramayana story. The chorus represents the monkey army helping King Rama rescue his queen, Sinta, from Rahwana, the ogre-king.

The Balinese practise their own religion, a unique blend of Hinduism and traditional Balinese beliefs. Important island-wide festivals, such as Galungan, call for ten days of prayer, music and dance. Most villages boast several gamelans owned by the local music club. The members, all men, meet there in the evenings to rehearse. They are almost all amateurs, earning their living as farmers, craftsmen or civil servants.

Kebyar – the new style

When the Dutch took control of Bali in the early twentieth century the island’s courts all but disappeared. This had an enormous impact on the musical life of the island. New gamelans were made for the latest style: kebyar – a word that means “like the bursting open of a flower”.

Another popular ensemble is the joged Bumbung (“bumbung” means bamboo). This style was born in the 1950s in west Bali and was based on the joged, an old flirtatious dance where the female dancers invite men from the audience to take turns dancing with them.

Javanese gamelan for beginners: unraveling the secrets of an exquisite form.

Javanese gamelan orchestra

Few laypeople outside of Indonesia are familiar with gamelan music, Indonesia’s gorgeous bronze gong ensembles. It’s a different story for serious musicians and ethnomusicologists from around the globe. These specialists consider the nation’s many gamelan traditions (Javanese, Balinese, Sundanese and others) to be among the richest, most intriguing music in the world. Javanese gamelan in particular has fueled much study – not to mention fierce passions. It’s not uncommon to hear stories about Western musicians who discover the compelling world of Javanese gamelan music. Many virtually renounce their past musical endeavors and entirely devote themselves to the study of this exotic art form.

If Javanese gamelan music is so irresistible, why isn’t it more popular, among both everyday Indonesians and the foreigners who visit Indonesia? I won’t presume to speak for Indonesians, other than to note that gamelan is a classical, perhaps “old-fashioned” tradition. It has much competition from other forms of music from Indonesia and elsewhere.

The basic instruments of the gamelan, like this saron peking, are easy to start playing.

gamelan tour jakarta

But for foreigners, the dismaying reality is that on first listening, a sophisticated gamelan piece – the sort you are likely to hear at a palace performance in Central Java, where many non-Indonesians get their first and only exposure to the repertoire – can be downright unpleasant: scratchy string playing, nasal singing, seemingly out-of-tune melodies. Just as a poem in French might sound superb to a speaker of the language, but like annoying gibberish if you don’t speak French, most people need some understanding of what they are hearing before they can appreciate the complex interplay of instruments.

That doesn’t mean gamelan has to be out of reach for novices, though. You can enjoy the French poem if someone takes the time to explain it. Likewise, if you have musical inclinations and are curious to expand your horizons, you can begin to appreciate gamelan.

Many people begin their gamelan studies in college, but there is no need to enroll at a university to start learning. All it takes to begin playing the simplest forms is a set of instruments, a patient instructor, and a few friends to join in. (Gamelan music is never a solo art form; it always depends on the interactions of various musicians.) Despite being exceptionally difficult to master at more advanced levels, Javanese gamelan is surprisingly simple to start learning.  You can contribute to an ensemble without studying the difficult parts.

Where to start?

Pagoyuban Retnobudaya playing for the 30th anniversary celebration of The Jakarta Post.

gamelan tour jakarta

The challenge is finding that gamelan set,  instructor, and friends. But if you are in Jakarta and your schedule and location make it possible to visit Jl. Duren Tiga on Sunday mornings, you’re might want to give Samurti Andaru Laras a try. This group usually communicates in Indonesian, but many members speak English and they are welcoming to new people.

If you have ever been an amateur musician, or just a music aficionado, it group is well worth giving this a try. Sitting surrounded by the majestic gongs and playing the music yourself, even as a complete beginner, is a much different experience than listening from outside. And the underlying assumptions of gamelan are so different from those of Western music that it will delightfully expand your ideas about what music is. Who knows – maybe you will discover that you too have a fierce passion for gamelan music.

Want to hear some basic music? Here’s a recent video of Paguyuban Retnobudaya (a beginners’ group the author managed while living in Indonesia) playing a beginner’s piece:

Is it easy to find places to hear the gamelan and are there frequent concerts or ceremonies?

Call the hotel +6221 570 4444 for performance schedule

Tips: Jakarta lacks of regular (i.e. year-round scheduled performances) art & cultural performances, so don't expect to catch any regular shows whilst visiting the city.

The National Museum at Jalan Merdeka Barat also performs puppet show and gamelan every Sunday morning but not sure if it's still running.

While the Javanese Wayang Wong or Wayang Orang dance dramas is performed at The Bharata Purwa Theatre every Saturday evening (8.20 p.m. till midnight). It is located at Jalan Kalilio 15 in Pasar Senen area, Jakarta.

Hi Cirque and Mike,

Thank you for your information. I'll check the National Museum about Sunday morning dance dramas and the Bharata Purwa Theatre and the Wayang Museum.

Tips: Air connection to Yogyakarta is well connected from either Jakarta and Bali .

gamelan tour jakarta

don't forget that there is always a Gamelan playing in the old lobby of the Istana Hotel. you will hear more than a few songs over a cup of hot brew at the lobby bar.

go up and speak to the performers. They are always willing to play, have heir photo taken, or even let you hit a few gongs with them if you like.

Have a great time.

Please address your question to the respective forums: Bali and Lombok.

Wrong forum.

The very quick answer is that tradtional gamelan music and art performances are very very common in Bali, both in commercial venues and in temples as part of Hindu rituals.

Javanese gamelan and dance are very different from Balinese, btw. so you could watch both "styles" and see and hear totally different things. (in other words, it's good to do BOTH)

Government tightens supervision of chartered tour buses after deadly accidents

Following a string of tragic accidents involving chartered tour buses, the government screened the road-readiness of buses over the Waisak extended holiday in an attempt to improve what experts deem as lackluster supervision of transportation providers.

The Transportation Ministry set up checkpoints in tourist destinations across the country to inspect the road-readiness of buses during the four-day holiday from May 23 until Sunday, when tour buses were expected to clog up roads.

These checkpoints, which operated every day throughout the holiday, were geared to ensure that buses had up-to-date paperwork and that they met the ministry’s safety standards.

The first day of inspections on Thursday revealed that less than half of the 67 buses inspected in three provinces, namely Jakarta, Banten and Riau, as well as Bogor regency in West Java, had their papers in order. The remaining buses either had expired papers or were operating without any paperwork.

“When it comes to cases like these, we will hand them over to the police to follow up on so that there will be a deterrent effect,” the ministry’s Land Transportation Director General Hendro Sugiatno said in a statement.
