Southeast Asian Night 2016

March 21, 2016

For this year’s Southeast Asian Night, organised by NUS’s Department of Southeast Asian Studies, we featured a variety of bronze and bamboo music from Java, Sunda and Bali. A big thank you to our friends from the wider Singapore gamelan community who helped to make this a success, Mas Tommy and the Southeast Asian Students Society for the lovely photos, and kudos to our participants from the beginner’s workshop who gamely shared the stage with us!
