Urban Wahlstedt – Gamelan and Indonesian puppet theatre

Saturday 4 June 2016 14:00 - 15:00 The Stockholm Cathedral Parish Hall

In this year's perhaps most "exotic" festival element Urban Wahlstedt, who toured a whole life as puppet player in both Asia and Europe, gives a speech about the concept of gamelan.

The word refers to a collection of Indonesian percussion instrument, attuned in a five-tone scale, which can be traced back to the 800s!

We will both hear live music examples and see parts of the stick doll-theatre play Wayang Golek from West Java.


In Swedish!

Free admission!
