Angklung and Local Wisdom Values

Endang Caturwati


Angklung performance in Indonesia has been growing since hundreds of years ago. It was carried out by the villagers as an expression of amusement on important days after harvest. The subsequent Angklung development is a transformation into performing arts. In addition to the aesthetic element, it also explores the communicative elements. This research uses experimental methods and pedagogic analysis. The research shows that when people study or perform Angklung, they are actually learning a lot of values. Students are not only adjusting the arm movement with the music, but also, adjusting the time to practice, conformity to rules, and teamwork. Thus, Angklung Performance in Indonesia provides local wisdom and can be a media for character education, especially to raise good values, tolerance, and good teamwork.
