Joey Pelletier was born in 2003, the Pelletiers' son, joins as the youngest member of the Arcinda - Kyai Brojo Marto gamelan group. However, he is not the least talented member. He is able to keep up playing at everybody's pace. He plays piano when he is 6 yrs old, and suddenly woke up in the middle of night, wanted to learn gamelan.
Teaching him with simple gamelan notation won't challenge him. His piano back ground apparently helps him to pick up gamelan talent.And now become one of the key melody of the group, following his mom, he is learning bonang, the complicated gamelan instrument.
