Seruan Setu

An immersive music experience like no other.

We believe that music can be an incredible tool for creating awareness of the issues faced by our planet.

Our performance is a celebration of the beauty of the Malaysian seagrass, and an exploration of how we can come together to protect it.


Join us this August, and be part of this extraordinary journey.

Seruan Setu - The Secret Gardens of the Sea

Imagine stepping into a performance space and finding yourself in the heart of Malaysia's beautiful but endangered seagrass ecosystems. "Seruan Setu - The Secret Gardens of the Sea" takes you on this transformative journey, featuring the rich and evocative sounds of a contemporary gamelan ensemble.


But this is more than a musical performance — it's a call to nature, an ode to the underwater meadows that breathe life into our oceans and support local communities.


Every note, rhythm and melody in "Seruan Setu" tells a story about these living seagrass ecosystems and the people who depend on them. As the music swells, you're drawn into stories about the hidden charisma of the sea and its importance to our shared existence.


This isn’t just a musical spectacle — it's a space that sparks curiosity, encourages conversation and inspires action to preserve these ecosystems.


In the end, you'll not just be a passive audience, but part of the dialogue about the environment, part of the solution.

About Rhythm in Bronze

Have you ever encountered a gamelan ensemble rocking the traditional instruments, transforming ancient sounds into contemporary melodies and telling a bigger story about our planet in the process? If not, let me introduce you to Rhythm in Bronze (RiB).


RiB is more than a gamelan group; it's a creative force dedicated to connecting environmental issues and performing arts. Since its inspiring beginnings in 1997, RiB has crossed boundaries and connected the worlds of social commentary and performing arts in a way that no one else has.
