Saung Angklung Udjo - Review
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. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Bandung itinerary 1 day.

Saung Angklung Udjo, Bandung Reviews
The best part of our first day in Bandung! If you are here even for just a day, come to watch (and participate) their afternoon show! It’s awesome in terms of culture, music and entertainment. We also bought a few things in the shop.
Enjoyable show with commentary in English as well as Indonesian. I didn't understand everything but had a good time. It's not just a spectacle, they get you involved (in a non scary way) too.
Good musical cultural performance. They even teach you how to play the Angklung. Entrance fee is about 100,000rupiah. You get welcome drinks.
House of angklung, traditional musical instrument of Jawa Barat. Serves like museum and bamboo conservation, with daily artist performance playing international songs. One of the most popular tourist destination in Bandung. Rich culture. However its located in crowded area, with small street access.
Great place to see some local culture. The entrance is around 100K. You get to see local children perform local dances. The show takes around 2.5 hours. The best part was when the audience were given an angklung instrument and we were playing some well known tunes :)
