Konser Kampung

 

Konser Kampung Is a community of cultural arts that was born in 1986 in the village of Jatitujuh located in the north of Majalengka, West Java. Members of this community group share different talents ranging from art and music to dance and writing. This year they have focused on the creation of new experimental instruments made from bamboo. Their talents and various other acts connected with community art are often combined with events and social activities within and outside of this village.

 

BACKGROUND

The village of Jatitujuh need a space for creation, exploration and collaboration, to promote art as a way of life. For the past years they have been using temporary studio spaces, friends bamboo shacks, local coffee houses and their own lounge rooms to produce, discuss and practice their art and music. By building a central hub in this village for education and execution of creativity, it will provide easier access to art materials and space, therefor encouraging both the young and old in this village to play more of a participatory role in art creation and experimentation. Konser Kampung have been making music, events for the community, art and experimental instruments since 1986, touring, collaborating and inspiring many. Art is indispensable in their lives and the lives of the village.
