Bambajam awardA revolutionary new instrument designed to encourage creativity and cooperation through music, invented by jazz pianist and educator Duncan McKee. The Pelangi set is built for young children and uses bold colours and pictures instead of note names.

Bambajam Pelangi consists of a collection of tuned bamboo tubes which can be hit by themselves as part of an ensemble or placed in the specially made frame and played as a solo or duet xylophone. The simple design gives players the freedom to build their own instrument and include as many people as want to join in. Watch the video below to get an idea of how it works:

Positive ethical production is an important part of the Bambajam philosophy, so each individual note and frame is made of sustainably sourced bamboo and manufactured by hand with the help of the East Bali Poverty Project.

Along with the instrument, Duncan has come up with an ingenious new notation system using colours, shapes and pictures. It adapts well to music of varied complexity and can be used in conjunction with traditional notation making it an ideal way to teach both young and old players to read music. When you buy a Bambajam instrument you'll also be given access to the huge online library of scores.
The Pelangi set consists of:

     •     Double sided frame
     •     13 perfectly tuned handheld instruments
     •     6 mallets
     •     Carry bag
     •     Pelangi users' guide
     •     3 song packs
     •     Flashcards
     •     Access to online library
