Gamelan means Hammer and this is exactly what Year 5 were using to play a range of instruments from Indonesia.
Although this was the very first playing of these instruments, they had already advanced to lesson 7! (Such talent!)
To show respect in the way these instruments are played shoes were taken off and the children had to sit on special cushions.
The sound was haunting and mesmorising; such a different sound and one we have never had the opportunity of playing before. Hopefully we will get some videos and publish these on the website.
