An informal music event in Java, a klenèngan features musicians who gather for a kind of jam session, often arranged by a family for a special event. Typically lasting until late at night, audience members are intimately involved, integrating the social with the musical. Guests come and go as they wish, quietly chat with other audience members, and immerse themselves in a transporting evening of music that draws from the Javanese classical repertoire.

Made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Kathy Hochul and administered by Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC). And, with a grant from the American Indonesian Cultural and Educational Foundation (AICEF). And, with support from the Consulate General of the Republic of Indonesia.

  • Support the Future of Classical Javanese Music

    For nearly three decades, our community-based gamelan ensemble has presented the classical music, dance, and shadow theater of Central Java to appreciative audiences. Gamelan Kusuma Laras is not only a musical ensemble, but a cultural ambassador, embracing study and performance as a powerful affirmation of shared values and humanity across cultural differences. As a small non-profit organization, we depend on the good will of people like you not only to help pay for guest artists and teachers (including our long-time mentor and inspirational Artistic Director, I.M. Harjito) but also to support our educational and outreach activities. Thank you for your kind consideration.
