Yogyakarta city really deserve called as cultural city. We can feel very solid, thick and strong the nuance of Java before entering the Malioboro street. On the Abu Bakar Ali parking area we can watch, listen and enjoy the rhythm of Gamelan (the traditional Javanese music instrument) music. Since October 2007, an art group performed the gamelan traditional art routinely. (sample picture: set of Gamelan)

The traditional music created from the sound blend of gong, kenong, bonang and other various gamelan instrument can give soul really calmness. You can enjoy it every day from 8 AM to 8 PM. In every times staging, there is around eight to nine mans who is playing a set gamelan. Simply not only the local tourist that enjoy it, but foreign countries tourist also hardly likes this gamelan music.

The actors who are playing the gamelan come from various areas of Yogyakarta. They seem to be hardly expert plays the castanets. They hope that this tradition is eternal and enthused by the young generations.

Till now, Yogyakarta visited as tourism city especially because of the uniqueness of cultural tradition like the gamelan show in Abu Bakar Ali parking area. Hence, don’t let the tradition extinct from Yogyakarta.
