*Note from WAMM Founder : I am actually really excited about this show because it will be my first time singing proper songs with Gamelan. And I have to say, honest to goodness, rehearsals so far have been magical. I can only hope that my singing will do justice to the wonderful sounds of the gamelan. So do come and watch!
