Indonesian Gamelan Duo
Not only is it rare to hear the sound of the Balinese Gamelan in Australia, it is even rarer to see Australians playing the music with such precision and flair. This duo proudly brings traditional Balinese bamboo music (called Gamelan Rindik) to Australia. Rindik is an instrument of bamboo tubes suspended in a decorative wooden frame and is usually played in pairs. People who have visited Bali may fondly remember seeing Rindik being played in the hotels and restaurants.
The pair discovered the enchanting sounds of the Balinese Gamelan whilst studying at the Victorian College of the Arts and have pursued their fascination for the music with intense passion ever since. They both travel to Bali regularly to study and perform with renowned musicians on many gamelan instruments, including the Rindik.
They are Melbourne’s first and only Rindik ensemble. Rindik music is relaxed and atmospheric but it can also be very exciting – The duo bring a little slice of Bali to every performance.
