BANDUNG-Hundreds of school children from elementary to high school simultaneously play angklung in the yard of Gedung Sate Bandung, Sunday morning (19/11).
Massive angklung performance was held in the framework of the 7th anniversary of the designation of angklung as an inheritance by Unesco objects.
