The 20 instruments that originate from Indonesia are made of bronze and are built and tuned to be played together as an orchestra.

They produce a unique rhythmical vibrating sound, allowing a variety of music to be played, ranging from louder, flamboyant and dramatic pieces to quieter, contemplative arrangements. Plymouth University students and staff developed their music skills during their visit to Bali.

Today's events

Visions Season - New and Mindful Visions

In ‘Mindful Visions’ the music programme has looked at the human psychology, connecting the sense of self to visions. The 1920s programme explores the Roaring Twenties when an new vision of post-war positivity was coming to the fore. This was eagerly demonstrated with new ideas in dance, music and songs – jazz music became the rage with its catchy rhythms and slick, sophisticated song lyrics.
