Watch a free live performance from Gamelan Bike Bike

Did you know that you can make music with discarded bike frames? Sure can! Gamelan Bike Bike proves us just that.

This Vancouver community-based ensemble transformed discarded metal, including 100 bike frames, into tunned metallophones and gongs to play Indonesian-inspired music.

Gamelan (pronounced “GA-muh-lan”) is the name for the traditional Indonesian percussion orchestra well-known in the islands of Bali and Java. The orchestra consists mostly of gongs and various tuned metal instruments that are struck with mallets.

Don’t miss out on Gamelan Bike Bike’s one-time Art Moves performance on transit!

  • Commercial–Broadway Station: Monday, October 16, 5–7 p.m.
