Cardiff Gamelan

6:00PM - 8:00PM
Chapter Arts Centre

Our  community ensemble, which meets regularly on Tuesday evenings. Repertoire includes both traditional Javanese music and western compositions for gamelan. Gamelan is a wonderfully versatile set of instruments, allowing people of all ages and abilities to take part. The group welcomes new members to join this mixed ability group, regardless of previous experience.

Each weekly session is held in the Lefel 1 Studio at St David’s Hall.

Musical Director: Helen Woods
Gamelan Producer: Rhian Workman

The St David’s Hall gamelan is a complete Javanese percussion orchestra from the workshop of Pak Tentrem Sarwento in Java. The set was bought by the former St David’s Hall and New Theatre Trust (now the Arts Active Trust), with the support of a National Lottery Grant from the Arts Council of Wales, and arrived in Cardiff in April 1998. Since then, thousands of people of all ages have come from far and wide to enjoy playing and listening to the music of the St David’s Hall gamelan.
