Author: Good Vibrations
We’ve been coming up with some creative ways to keep people connected and entertained during lockdown. Here are three fantastic videos that our team have made to celebrate gamelan and Wayang puppetry.

Kitchen Gamelan
We love the beautiful ornate instruments of the gamelan orchestra, but we also love that Kieran and Collin were able to create a traditional Kothek piece from the comfort of their home with jars, pans, garageband and a bucket! Genius!

Wayang shadow puppetry
Dave has made a beautiful 3 minute video about Wayang puppetry. “The stories and traditional gamelan music explore what it is to be human and the challenges faced by all people”. It’s very moving to see some of our participants tell their own stories through puppetry.

What is gamelan anyway?
We talk about gamelan a lot at Good Vibrations, but what exactly is it? In this short video, musician and facilitator Emily explains where it comes from and what each instrument looks and sounds like. This is a simple fun introduction to these magnificent instruments.
