Gamelan Dutå Laras

Outstanding among the Faculty’s collection of instruments from outside the Western tradition is the Gamelan Dutå Laras. This is a complete Javanese bronze gamelan, which can be played in both slendroand pelog scales, consisting of keyed metallophones, gongs, drums, suling, and rebab. It was presented to the University of Cambridge by the government of the Republic of Indonesia in 1983, and is regularly used by the Cambridge Gamelan Society.
