They enjoy playing angklung and very passionate about their instruments.

(Nick Goudkuil –Storyteller and Accordionist)

Playing an angklung is like writing a book. You’re telling what’s in your heart

Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything

Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent

About Us

Angklung is a traditional instrument from Indonesia. Angklung Eindhoven is an angklung ensemble established in September 2010. The group consists of 25 active members, mostly are Indonesian and international students from Eindhoven University of Technology and Fontys University of Applied Science, as well as Eindhoven local residents. We have a broad repertoire ranging from classical and opera music, Indonesian traditional and folksongs, to world pop songs.

With a mission to introduce angklung to wider public in the Netherlands and Europe, we have delivered more than 50 performances in the past five years. Since 2012, we have held annual concerts at Frits Philips Muziekgebouw. In these concerts, we have collaborated with singers and choirs, string and woodwind ensembles, Chinese traditional instruments, as well as Indonesian traditional dancers.

I’ve never seen angklung before. It is such a simple-looking instrument but it can make so much music. I really like it.

Saya sudah nonton konser tiga kali, Angklung Eindhoven selalu menampilkan hal-hal yang baru dan inovatif.
-Audience, Student at Fontys Hogeschool

We really enjoyed it, We always come to AE concert, this is the third time. Every year it is getting better and better, and more professional. I am very curious how next year is.
-Audience

I would like to thank you so much for a totally wonderful performance, it was a fantastic addition to our evening. The music was to a very high standard – I for one am not a great fan of classical music but I was totally enchanted by you.  I didn’t want the music to end. Thank you so much.
