Pole dancing’s popularity has grown in Hong Kong in recent years.

The Gamelan in Hong Kong

Hong Kong is known to be an international city that bridges the East and the West, but what is often overlooked is the inevitable fact that it is also a city that brings different distinct Eastern cultures together. “The Gamelan in Hong Kong” extends the idea of a concert into an encounter that invites the audience to experience a completely different Eastern culture in an Eastern city. Arts, ranging from music to dance, of Indonesian roots, one of the Southeast Asian cultures that have not been displayed in Hong Kong often, will be showcased. "The Gamelan in Hong Kong" also acts as an initiative to encourage the inclusivity of Southeast Asians as well as Belt and Road cultures in Hong Kong.

Created and Composed by Lauryn Vania Kurniawan
Supported by the Consulate General of Indonesia Hong Kong, National Bank of Indonesia (Bank Nasional Indonesia), Garuda Indonesia, Model ASEAN and Hong Kong Baptist University
Performed by members of the Gip Percussion Ensemble, Collegium Musicum of Hong Kong and Baptist University Symphony Orchestra
