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 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.
Fun and educational spot. Love the performance. Very interactive performer. To bad rules are not strict... some stupid and brainless people still smoking at the public place full of kids and baby. Shame on you.
OH YES, the most recommended place to visit in Bandung. Make sure you don't miss this one. I love when they taught me how to speak sign language. It was an honor for me 😊
