About Saung Angklung Udjo, Bandung
A group of children joyfully line up in traditional Sundanese costume, welcoming all visitors as they walk into the green bamboo hall of Saung Angklung Udjo Village in Bandung, West Java. Simply translated as Udjo’s House of Angklung, this one-stop cultural workshop offers a complete experience around Angklung, Indonesia’s traditional musical instrument made of bamboo. Angklungconsists of one single note, creating a soothing chord. It produces sound when it is shaken rapidly. An ensemble may consist of 3 or 4 players to a full orchestra playing the Angklung repertoire.
Established in 1966 by the late Udjo Nalagena and his beloved wife, Uum Sumiyati, Saung Angklung Udjo was built with purpose and dedication to conserve West Java’s Sundanese traditional art and culture. It was Udjo Nalagena who brought the passion and principles which made Saung Angklung Udjo a place where Sundanese art and culture thrive and gained proper respect worldwide.
His efforts to introduce and promote Angklung finally paid off when UNESCO inscribed Angklung in the Intangible Cultural Heritage List in November 2010. His love and dedication for Sundanese art is manifested in this beautiful and tranquil complex, consisting of performance hall, a bamboo handicraft centre, and bamboo instrument workshop.

It's a nice place to enjoy the traditional music of Sundanese people. They have three sessions of angklung performance everyday each show is shout 2 hours and it's a great show for all ages of course. You will not only enjoy the unique sound of angklung but also you will get the chance to learn how to play the instrument. The ticket is cheap and you will have a good time if you are in to music I mean traditional music. The site also have souvenirs shops, cafeteria and large parking area. Just One of my favorites
The performance was great. From the first program till the last were very interesting, enjoyable and made the audience got involved and felt really happy. We could feel the unity as one Indonesia and really proud of the richness of our own culture.
It is a truly wonderful way to experience the authentic Indonesian culture. Here we can see the traditional musicians handling the bamboo instrument (angklung) with great expertise. Each item comes with a surprise. Children of various age perform different dances representing different Indonesian culture. Towards the end, the audience are given a chance to try the anklung and play along with an experienced music teacher who is very patient and entertaining. Then even more fun at the end, the dance session. The whole audience are invited to come to the floor and dance. It is a must-see show.
