This year, we are shifting our focus to South Asia to appreciate the pristine beauty of Indonesia through Gamelan.

Gamelan music, popular in Indonesia, has always struck people as a mysterious yet unique sound. Gamelan is frequently used in religious rituals, celebrations, and adopted to accompany dance performances and shadow plays. Other than working with the gamelan band from Tainan University of the Arts, and Taiwan Bamboo Orchestra for fusion collaboration, TCO has also invited a noted gamelan artist from Indonesia this year, for an expedition into the city. "More Than Gamelan" fuses Taiwanese opera and sizhu music, so that you can allow your senses to reprogram themselves for an exciting adventure with TCO!
