Gamelan Orchestra – Kyai Jati Roso

Director,  Dr Peter Moran

The National Concert Hall Gamelan Orchestra was established by Dr Peter Moran in 2014 when Ireland received a specially-built gamelan as a gift from Sultan Hamengkubuwono X of Yogyakarta.

After coming together through the UCD School of Music, the ensemble’s first official concert as the NCH Gamelan Orchestra was to perform alongside the Royal Palace Gamelan Musicians of Yogyakarta, who were brought to Ireland to perform before the sultan and members of the Yogyanese royal family, and diplomatic delegates from around the world, for the gamelan’s formal “naming ceremony”. Since then, the ensemble has performed at some of Ireland’s biggest festivals, including the Electric Picnic, the Bray Jazz Festival, the Kaleidoscope Festival, and Beyond the Pale, and in Indonesia, at the 2014 Yogyakarta International Performing Arts Festival, and the 2018 International Gamelan Festival in Surakarta.
