For our last assignment, we were assigned to make a report on Malaysian traditional art. I had a few on my mind but somehow, I thought of proposing to my group mates about Gamelan.
Gamelan Melayu consists of mainly 7 instruments:
It wasn’t hard for me to find someone to interview or even play the Gamelan for us. I called a friend from my old school to set a date for us to come and two lovely juniors of mine, helped a lot for our report. They were so attentive and super helpful. I did not expect them to teach us on how to play the instrument (mainly because it is getting late) but they didn’t mind at all. And, I am proud that my group mates managed to play one set beautifully, despite only practising it for a short brief of time.
Travelling back to UiTM with my new university friends is something. I do miss my old university (I was there for 3 years after high school and a LOTTTT happened) but it feels nice to come back and introduced my new friends a bit of my past. I don’t think this would happened if we are not assigned for this assignment. So, thank you to all of our lecturers for this great subject. Made me feel a bit more cultured than I was. Hehe. ❤
