Gamelan in Buffalo is growing! Donate today to make our impact a big success in 2023

Gamelan music and Indonesian cultural activities have turned a corner in Buffalo! 2023 is going to be our biggest year yet but we need your support to make it a reality and to make the biggest musical impact we can in 2023. Nusantara Arts has grown from one program in the start of 2022 to three with the recent launch of our Balinese gamelan and bamboo angklung groups that add to our long running Javanese gamelan program.

Nusantara Arts is growing, we have more people than even participating in and benefiting from the work we do. In many cases our musical and cultural activities are changing lives and bringing people to a form of music they didn’t know existed in Buffalo, bringing people closer to the wonderful culture of Indonesia. We have so much work to do to get the word out to our community about our new programs. That’s where you can help! making a gift before the end of 2022 will help ensure that the activities we are offering in 2023 will reach the widest audience possible around Buffalo and Erie County. Don’t be afraid! make a donation today and make 2023 the best year yet for our (and your) favorite local gamelan!

Gamelan music from the islands of Indonesia are some of the oldest continuously played musical art forms in the world. Nusantara Arts invites you to experience this expansive experience in music and art.

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 like wayang kulit shadow puppetry, and dance 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 strives to be an equitable and inclusive arts community. We welcome all peoples to come and enjoy the wonderful music and culture of Indonesia. All of our events and classes are sliding scale to remain affordable and accessible. We often perform free events in the community and look forward to seeing you at one! Check back often for upcoming performances and class opportunities!
