Arsenal's players have prepared for July's visit to Jakarta by learning how to play a gamelan - the traditional musical ensemble from Indonesia.

Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny, Bacary Sagna, Gervinho and Nacho Monreal worked at the training ground with tutors John Pawson and Manuel Jimenez from the Southbank Gamelan Players and the results can be seen in our free video clip above.

The five Arsenal players learned about the collection of instruments and were given a background to their historical and cultural significance in Javanese culture.

The Gunners will visit Indonesia for the first leg of the Asia Tour 2013, returning to the country for the first time since 1983. The first team will play against the Indonesia national team on Sunday, July 14 at the 88,000-capacity Gelora Bung Karno Stadium in Jakarta. Arsène Wenger and his squad will then head to Vietnam and Japan.
