Nico & Martin: Instant Orchestra
How often do you get the chance to play in an orchestra? To jam with friends, family and complete strangers - even if you've never played an instrument before? For more than twenty years Nico and Martin have been introducing new participants to the fun and musical adventure of joining an Instant Angklung Orchestra.We calculate we've played with at least 20,000 people in that time - not just performed to, but played with children and adults of all ages and in places as far apart as Connemara and Siberia. We've played in tents, in schools, in venues, at festivals, in hospitals, in parks, in the desert, on boats and on TV and radio. We've had everyone from PJ Harvey to Mrs Mary Robinson participate. But it's not enough! We need you!

Instant Orchestras have been formed and acclaimed by people of all ages in Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales, across Europe and in four tours to Australia. Previous participants include entire schools, actors, Morbegs, Tellytubbies, theatre festival audiences and Culture Night visitors to the National Concert Hall, Dublin. In this fun hour we spend a little time mastering the angklung, a tuned bamboo rattle from Indonesia, and then invent our own original compositions. No musical experience is required!
