Gamelan is the traditional and cultural Indonesian music, which is played for ceremonies and formal occasions. The traditional ensemble of music in Indonesia consists of percussive instruments. These instruments include bamboo flutes, rebab, xylophones, metallophones and hand playing drums.

One of the best unique aspects about these instruments is that no two pieces are the same, which means that each gift is really a one of a kind. You could choose to purchase sets or individual items. If luggage space and budget are your concern, then just grab a bamboo flute.

PORTABLE LEVEL
Bamboo flutes are quite easy to manage.

PRICE RANGE
It costs you a few dollars to get a bamboo flute.
