Selamat datang

My name is Ethan (also known as “Mas Bro,” “Hey look, a bule,” and very occasionally “Pak Guru”). I am an American currently studying at Institut Seni Indonesia, Yogyakarta. My hope is that this blog will be a place to showcase and explore Javanese culture, in particular gamelan Yogyakarta.

Some of the content here will be directly related to gamelan practice (recordings, notation, theory). The rest will be anything and everything related to life in Indonesia, Indonesian/Javanese language, people and places, food, Indonesian news, and possibly cats.
