Apart from that, SAU has an honorable function as an educational laboratory and training centre to preserve the Sundanese culture - Angklung in particular.
Established in 1966 by Udjo Ngalagena and his beloved wife Uum Sumiati, with a strong purpose and dedication to conserve and preserve Sundanese traditional art and culture.

Located in eastern Bandung, SAU is a perfect tranquility for enjoying fresh-breeze-air and beautiful bamboo domination, from the bamboo crafts and interiors to the sound of musical instruments.
The Story Begins
In the 50', there is a family - a married couple with 10 children - who started a story of establishing a unique art performance venue; the idea was to make bamboo as theme, so, the chairs, the musical instruments and even the stage, all are made of bamboo.

Unexpectedly, the performance impressed the audience with a memorable experience. Everywhere is laughter; everywhere is smile; everywhere is cheerful. Ever since the beginning, smiles and activities of the performing children become the spirit of this place.
Daeng Soetigna inspired Udjo Ngalagena through a philosophy named 5Ms : Mudah (easy), Murah (cheap), Mendidik (educative), Menarik (attractive), Massal (mass). Later on, Udjo put one additional value to perfect this philosophy, which is Meriah (cheerful) - that would change the face of Angklung afterwards.
Udjo developed those principals into a wonderful-ideal concept called Kaulinan Urang Lembur - a perfect combination of an attractive performance and a sense of educative. And that would be the reason why people visit SAU.
