Welcome to the website of Langen Suka, a group dedicated to traditional Javanese gamelan music and dance in Sydney. We invite new members to join us as gamelan is something that anyone with or without musical training can learn to play. In Java gamelan is viewed as a representation of an ideal and harmonious society in which each individual plays an integral part according to his or her own character, talents and abilities. While our members come from diverse backgrounds and parts of Sydney, we get together at our weekly practices to play this unique and beautiful music as well as socialising, as the Javanese do, while we enjoy a snack or two during breaks.
This new website was launched in January 2016 and has been thoroughly updated and expanded with additional information and features.
