Be enchanted by a gamelan concert performed in the Amazon Waterlily Pavilion as part of the Nature Festival.

The music ensemble, Queens of the Bronze Age, invite you to experience FLORA BLORA: an enchanting concert played on an antique gamelan set from Blora, Central Java (Indonesia).

Performing classical Javanese gamelan music and avant-garde works by renowned local composer David Kotlowy, the musicians will create a hypnotic sonic atmosphere especially for the plants in the Pavilion. You – the audience – will be the witnesses.

FLORA BLORA also features the Plant Queen, a mediator between the human and plant world.

This is an exclusive event; tickets are limited due to Pavilion capacity. With only two shows, book early to avoid missing out.

The concert runs for 70 minutes and must begin on time. Please arrive at the Amazon Waterlily Pavilion no later than 15 minutes prior to the designated start time, and show your ticket.

The performance takes place in two areas in and/or around the Pavilion. The audience will be directed by ushers to move during parts of the event and stand for two short periods. If you require seating at all times, or have other accessibility considerations, please notify the host at the time of ticket purchase using the event contact details listed.

Accessible concert venue and toilets.

The concert goes ahead in rain or shine. If weather permits, the audience may be seated outside the Pavilion for part of the concert. Bring warm clothing/a lap blanket in case of cold temperatures.
