Gamelan Crimson Bloom

Owned by Mike Coffey and first used at Liberty Ridge Elementary in Sumner, Wa. Then moved to Blaine Elementary in Blaine, Wa. Currently in Naples, Italy at Naples American High School. These instruments have touched hundreds of students over the 12 years they have been used and have been a favorite of all my students. Video of a performance of Ritjik Ritjik at the Seattle International Children’s Festival in 2003. Other pics are from a Wayang performance of Kancil stories at Blaine Elementary. I will never take for granted the huge contribution that Mas Hirdjan’s instruments have made to the musical learning of my students and the joy the instruments have brought them.
