We Did It!!

The Bronze Campaign to purchase a new gamelan was a success, because of you, our community.

Gamelan music from the island of Java in Indonesia is one of the oldest continuously played musical art forms in the world. Our Mission at Nusantara Arts is “To invite our community to an expansive experience in music and art, sparking dialogue about inclusion and cooperation.”

We believe in the power of music and community to change lives and create a beautiful world. The Gamelan music of Indonesia and associated cultural arts are ethereal as well as approachable. We are proud to call Buffalo our home base, and we love our worldwide gamelan community and all it has to offer.

Nusantara Arts VR Community Garden Covid Performance

Nusantara Arts was able to practice gamelan for a few weeks outdoors this summer in the back of a community garden in Buffalo. Safe social distancing was practiced during our rehearsals. It was so nice to be able to play with each other, and we are already missing it, now that winter is here. It was a great opportunity to make a unique 360 degree VR video with the help of our friend Dan Neveu. Enjoy! Scroll side to side and up and down to explore the performance.
