Saung Angklung Udjo is one-stop cultural workshop, consisting of: performance venue, bamboo handicraft centre, and bamboo instrument workshop. Apart from that, Saung Angklung Udjo has an honorable function as an educational laboratory and training centre to preserve the Sundanese culture - Angklung in particular.
I went to Saung Angklung Udjo with my big family. Actually it was my first time so I bring my cameras just in case if there is a show going there. Then my family and I decided to watch Saung Angklung Udjo’s Internal Performances, which is a program where you can enjoy a “diorama” of an attractive Sundanese wealth in presenting their art performance from Wayang Golek demonstration, Helaran procession, Angklung for beginner, Angklung orchestra, Angklung interactive to Arumba and end–up dancing together along with the audience. Bamboo afternoon show is a frenzied–energetic performance with a concept originated by Udjo Ngalagena – Kaulinan Urang Lembur.
This program is same as a regular performance, the interesting part from this program is that you can enjoy it with a family / friend / group and overall get knowledge about art tradition. What a blast! I shoot here and there! it was so fun! actually it was so much fun to learn your own culture and played traditional instrument. Angklung is a bamboo instrument in Sundanese culture. So if you’re in Bandung, please come to Saung Angklung Udjo! :D
Sometime between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago, a boy in northern Afghanistan was born with a gene mutation that hindered his eyes from producing melanin and thus from turning brown. He had blue eyes. If you see someone with blue eyes today, he is a descendant of this unlucky fellow. I am one of those weird folks and apart from feeling like a mutant and being Angelina Jolie’s secret sister, I am sensitive to light like an ISO 6,400 film.
Doug DuBois spent five summers photographing the small neighborhood of Russell Heights in Ireland to capture the essence of coming of age: the inevitable loss of youth and the imminent transition into adulthood. Those four years resulted in his latest book, My Last Day At Seventeen. The book is a visual tale told through a collection of photographs and gives an alternative perspective through a comic narrative around the same subject. This creative combination of two distinct narratives in one book not only works wonderfully in visual terms; it also serves as an essential tool that lets the reader dig deeper into the story being told, making one go back to the book over and over again, yet from a new perspective, every single time.
