SALING ASAH - BALINESE GAMELAN IN BELGIUM
Asah is a Belgian - Balinese - Indonesian music group, founded in June 1998, with the aim of training those who are interested into motivated musicians and dancers, and thus forming a professional ensemble of Balinese performing arts.
To realise this, Saling Asah organises weekly rehearsals on various different Balinese ensembles or orchestras. The primary orchestra is
GAMELAN GONG KEBYAR, although other important ensembles are used each with their own varied array of individual rhythmic and melodic irregularities which help to make them unique. This includes GENDER WAYANG (2 or 4 metallophones played with both left and right hand) and RINDIK (2 bamboo instruments). We rehearse and perform on these and other Balinese instruments.
Maybe you'd like to come to hear the music or see the dance?
For any information or reservations, please feel welcome to get into contact with us. We can provide you with all the necessary practical information and conditions required by our performances. It is always possible, of course, to make an appointment to witness and/or participate in one of our rehearsals so that you can get an idea of how our repertoire works.
