Keep Our Gamelan Thriving!

Join us as we invite our community to an expansive experience in music and art.


Gamelan music from the island of Java in Indonesia is one of the oldest continuously played musical art forms in the world. Our Mission at Nusantara Arts is “To invite our community to an expansive experience in music and art, sparking dialogue about inclusion and cooperation.”

We believe in the power of music and community to change lives and create a beautiful world. The Gamelan music of Indonesia and associated cultural arts are ethereal as well as approachable. We are proud to call Buffalo our home base, and we love our worldwide gamelan community and all it has to offer.

Your gift to Nusantara Arts End of Year Campaign will support -

  • Our amazing new rehearsal and performance space at St. John Grace Episcopal Church,
  • Our ongoing and excellent community gamelan music education program,
  • Worldwide gamelan preservation activities,
  • An immensely talented and dedicated team devoted to gamelan music in our community and around the world

Wayang Kulit Projector Screen Fund

Nusantara Arts now has an incredible collection of 209 Javanese Wayang Kulit Shadow Puppets, these are some of the finest puppets that will be in use outside Indoensia. What we don't have is a frame and screen to project the shadows onto. Help us raise funds for our shadow screen so our wayang performances in 2022 will be world class!
