Udjo's House of Angklung, Where Sundanese Art and Culture Thrive and Gain Proper Respect Worldwide

 

Located in the bustling eastern part of Bandung, Udjo's House of Angklung attempts to manifest beautiful harmony of vibrating bamboos that echoes from this simple amphitheater all the way to the other side of the world. It spreads the values of simplicity, co-operation, unity, and togetherness, as well as maintaining the mutual relationship between humans and the environment.

Established in 1966 by the late Udjo Ngalagena (1929-2001) and his beloved wife, the late Uum Sumiyati, Saung Angklung Udjo was built with purpose and dedication to conserve West Java’s Sundanese traditional art and culture. It was Udjo Ngalagena who brought the passion and principles which made Udjo's House of Angklung a place where Sundanese art and culture thrive and gain 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.

The show is packed with spectacular short performances, commencing with wayang golek (wooden puppet) show, helaran (agricultural harvesting celebration) rites, traditional dances, kids games, introduction to angklung, angklung orchestral performance, interactive angklung performance that involves visitors playing angklung, and arumba performance.
