Adelindo Angklung

Adelindo stands for ADELaide INDOnesia.
We are hobbyist musicians, specialists in playing one of many Indonesian Traditional Music Instruments, named Angklung.

Since 2011, we have performed on many occasions, multicultural events, and festivals in South Australia, and other states. We have performed in New Zealand and in Hawaii too.

The instrument, Angklung (AAAng – Klooong) is made of bamboo, a giant grass. Handmade from West Java, Indonesia. The sound of bamboo tubes is very soothing. Traditionally, it only has 5 notes (pentatonic). It is modified to have the same notes as international music tones. So not only can we play traditional folk songs from Indonesia, but we can play any songs from around the world.

On the 13th of September 2014, Adelaide held the biggest angklung ensemble called “Angklung United” at the Royal Adelaide Show. This event was an attempt to break the Guinness World Record (GWR) for the most people playing angklung together. There were 6,041 people playing angklung at that time.

This is the 5th time Adelindo has performed at Asia Oasis events. What a delightful relationship we have!

Catch Adelindo’s performance at Asia Street Food By the Sea on 
Friday the 16th & Sunday the 18th of February at 6:45 pm!
