From the intricate melodies of Javanese gamelan to the rhythmic beats of Thai khong wong lek, each nation boasts its own unique musical styles, instruments, and performance practices. Bamboo instruments, such as the angklung and kulintang, are prevalent across the region, producing resonant tones that evoke the landscapes and traditions of Southeast Asia.
