“Definitely a must-see”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

You haven't been to Bandung if you missed Saung Angklung Udjo. Ok, the merchandise shop in the entrance area was a little strange but it was still quite interesting. The whole place is about a traditional bamboo instrument. The show itself gives an impression about the instrument. But the highlight is definitely when instruments are handed out to the audience and with a brief instruction about playing the instrument, Then the grandson of the founder starts to conduct, first just the scale, then accords and finally songs. It was a very unique experience and I'm surely going there again on my next trip to Bandung

“great place to know Angklung”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Angklung known as the traditional musical instrument from West Java. This place gonna take you to know about angklung more. They will put you all in the little stage and teach you how to play angklung and you will be asked to get interact with all the performer from Udjo's. This is the great place to learn more about angklung.

“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Outstanding performance of music, dances, a little bit comedy and art as a whole. They involved the audience in the orchestra, it was awesome! The experience was so unique that I really want to repeat it. I will certainly go back to Udjo once I visit Bandung again.

“An amazing performance”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

It was an unforgetable experience to see and hear students from 5-6 years to 15-16 years old perform traditional Javan music and dance. Kudos to these kids for keeping their tradition alaive and well. The real treat was a public performance with angklungs when, under skillful direction from music teacher we performed some darn good music even though most of attendees new no notes whatsoever. It made Bandung visit entirely worthwile.

“Sundanese culture experience!”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

came here last november 2012. arrived on site, bought ticket. was given a little angklung as the entrance ticket. was given some welcome drinks as well...

anyway, they have 2 MC for the whole experience. both always speaks bahasa indonesia, then translates it to english. you can tell they speak fluent and clear english. Very friendly people too.

during the show, they also hand out the angklung for each of the audience, to have an experience on playing it. Very good experience!

anyway, its one of the best culture experience ive ever had in bandung! u need to see it!
