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. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Bandung itinerary 1 day.

  • Salah satu satu setengah jam terbaik dalam hidup saya. Sebuah pertunjukan yang indah. Memperkenalkan kesenian Jawa Barat. Salut dengan bocah-bocah Saung Angklung Udjo yang dengan antusias memainkan perannya. Sepanjang pertunjukan saya tidak berhenti tersenyum sendiri. Semua segmen dikemas dengan rapi apalagi segmen main angklung bareng. Pertunjukan diakhiri dengan menari bersama-sama ditengah stage. Well done! Dengan HTM Rp. 70.000 saya rasa sangat layak. Bagi anda yang lagi liburan di Bandung, ajak seluruh keluarga anda ke Saung Angklung Udjo. Selain bisa menikmati pertunjukan budaya khas Jawa Barat, secara tidak langsung kita juga ikut melestarikan kebudayaan yang makin terkikis oleh zaman yang makin modern. Sssttt... host nya teh Winda cantiiiik dan sangat atraktif. Teh Winda salah satu alasan durasi satu setengah jam yang disajikan tidak terasa menjemukan dan membosankan.

  • It is like the annual performance of a primary school. Kids between about 2 and 16 years old perform western evergreens on traditional instruments and dance (a bit unmotivated) to entertain tourists. In the end they are forced to come to the audience, force us to join them on stage for dancing and pretend to have fun with jumping around with us. If you want to see professional traditional dance & music this is not the right place. We liked the puppet show in the beginning and that we could try to play on the angklungs ourselves. To us, this is making money from children and foreigners. They talk in the show about how origin and religion don't matter and how everyone should live in peace, but then they make different price for foreigners...

  • The show is fun especially at the time they teach us how to play Angklung. The performers are mostly children. They are cute. By the way, the schedule for the show might change. The first time we visited it, there was only one performance listed on the information board (15.30) and in our second visit there were 3 performances listed on the board. So, it will be better if you call them first before coming.

  • I love its interactive performance so that the visitors can also play the angklung. So proud that still many youth concern about their culture

  • I can definitely recommend this place . Normally I'm not that type of person for shows like this one . But the fact that you take part in playing the instruments made it so funny ! Recommend it!
