    Saung Angklung Udjo

    Saung Angklung Udjo (SAU) is one–stop cultural workshop, consists of : performance venue, bamboo handicraft centre, and bamboo instrument workshop. Apart from that, SAU has an honorable function as an educational laboratory and training centre to preserve the Sundanese culture – Angklung in particular.

    Born in March 5th, 1929 from the couple Wiranta and Imi, Little Udjo started his journey in music, art and culture, since he was 4 years old.

    Udjo began to learn Angklung in both diatonic and pentatonic tone scale – which made him good to play traditional Sundanese and popular Indonesian songs – Dutch songs also come to that.

    His talent kept growing and he became an art teacher in several schools in Bandung. To improve his knowledge and ability, Udjo did not hesitate to learn directly from the experts, such as : Mang Koko the Kacapi expert; Rd.Machyar Angga Kusumahdinata the gamelan guru; and Daeng Soetigna the re–inventor of Angklung diatonic. Soon he became the assistant of Daeng Soetigna, and led performances on behalf of the teacher.

    His passionate love for art and culture is a reason for Udjo Ngalagena and his wife Uum Sumiati to establish Saung Angklung Udjo by itself. His married with Uum Sumiati has 10 children, and thanks God they are inherited much of Udjo’ passion and talent for Angklung.
