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
