Gamelan Lila Cita on ZingZillas
Surfing the web I came across an episode of the BBC children's show ZingZillas, featuring a pencak silat number accompanied by Gamelan Lila Cita. This can be viewed in the UK on BBC iPlayer at:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00s61lc/ZingZillas_Series_1_Welcome_Beach_Byrds/ (starting at 6.54).
This sort of thing would have been reported upon in the past in Seleh Notes or the UK Gamelan Information website. Unfortunately since Sheila Cude stopped playing gamelan and managing the website and magazine, we aren't getting news!
Hope somebody else takes up this role.... The UK is not that large a country, but none of us surely is aware of everything going on in Indonesian arts....
