September 1st, 2017: Gamelan Orchester Margi Budoyo


f the Indonesian consulate general of Hamburg is one of few Gamelan groups in Germany of this kind. In Indonesia, Gamelan music sounds to a variety of occasions such as religious festivities, weddings or births and to dances and shadow plays. Hallo Festspiele will be opposing this rich in tradition performance to the seemingly futuristic equipment of Hamburg-based composer and instrument maker Ferdinand Försch in the power plant’s Ballsaal.
