Welcome to Angklung Web Institute (AWI)! This website is a medium of information exchange about angklung knowledge and competence, especially diatonic angklung in orchestral composition. The Father of Angklung Daeng Sutigna first created the diatonic angklung in 1938. Until now, angklung still has to face many challenges of identity to be acknowledged as one of world’s standard music instruments. One major problem is that there is no firm standard yet in constructing, tuning, forming, playing, and compositing angklung. Another problem is that until today, an angklung music community as a media of education and industrialization of the angklung music hasn’t been founded yet. Through this website we would like to ask you who have a great concern to the development of angklung to pass this piece of information to the world in order to support this developing music instrument. Through this website we would like to convey an angklung-ical activity to an angklung team or community and hopefully someday the industrialization of angklung can be realized. Last, it is our duty to raise our angklung to be appreciated just like the other world’s standard music instruments. Thank you

Baru-baru ini ia membawa 7.000 angklung dari Jawa Barat ke Adelaide. Dan angklung ini membahana di udara Sabtu (13/09/14) malam di arena Royal Adelaide Show 2014.

Ribuan pengunjung pameran hasil pertanian ini menyambut dengan gegap gempita. Di tangan 6.100 pemain Australia dan Indonesia, konser angklung ini diharapkan memecahkan rekor dunia.

Keputusan Guinness World Records masih ditunggu, menurut siaran pers KBRI Canberra yang diterima Kompas.com. Sebelumnya, rekor konser angklung terbesar dipegang Washington, Amerika Serikat, ketika 5.182 anggota masyarakat memainkan angklung pada 9 Juli 2011.
 
Pameran pertanian di Adelaide ini merayakan 175 tahun masyarakat pertanian Australia Selatan (Royal Agriculture and Horticulture Society of South Australia). Ratusan relawan dan pelajar Indonesia membagikan angklung pada pengunjung.

Pesawat nir awak (drone) turut memantau acara. Di hadapan pengunjung pameran, Duta Besar Indonesia untuk Australia, Nadjib Riphat Kesoema, menyampaikan bahwa upaya memecahkan rekor dunia ini adalah upaya bersama masyarakat Australia dan Indonesia. Orkes angklung memainkan beberapa lagu antara lain Waltzing Matilda dan Happy Birthday.
