Gamelan Asmaradana Ltd (GA) is a not-for-profit performing arts and music education organization that is dedicated to preserving and promoting the appreciation of all styles and expressions of gamelan music, Javanese, Balinese, Sundanese, instrumental, dance and wayang, including angklung music too.
Incorporated in 2004, GA is made up of an ecclectic mix of gamelan enthusiasts from mid-teens to the silver-age, from all walks of life; some with no music background, but are enthusiastic and willing to learn; some with training in various genres of music (like Chinese, Malay, Indian, and Western too), and others with extensive training in gamelan, world music and ethnomusicology. Through passion, dedication, hardwork, youth and community outreach activities, we have created and presented many shows at distinctive venues in Singapore and regionally.
