The British Gamelan Trail

The British Gamelan Trail is an online oral history project, which explores how gamelan has become so popular in Britain that it now forms part of the national heritage. With close on one hundred active gamelans in the UK, how gamelan attracted so many people and how it has become part of their lives provide a series of fascinating stories told in their own words by participants involved in the world of gamelan, both young and old. The accounts were recorded in a variety of settings through interviews with the founders, artistic directors and players of a range of groups, including Javanese, Balinese and Sundanese gamelan.

The British Gamelan Trail is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
