10,000 ‘angklung’ musicians perform at Sentul International Convention Center

West Java Governor Ahmad Heryawan led 10,000 musicians performing “Tanah Airku” national anthem on angklung bamboo instruments at the West Java Angklung Colossal event at the Sentul International Convention Center (SICC) in Bogor on Wednesday.
According to Ahmad, the event was held to show the administration’s appreciation for the angklung being declared an intangible cultural heritage by Unesco in 2010.
“I hope this colossal angklung event will improve Indonesians’ love and appreciation for the angklung as an Indonesian musical instrument to be proud of,” said Ahmad as quoted by Antara news agency on Wednesday.
